Over the years, the gender pay gap has become an even more pressing issue within the global workforce. With numerous studies focusing on the wage inequities between a man and a woman, the demand for change is clear. To truly understand the imbalance and become a part of the solution, it’s important to be equipped with the impactful knowledge you need.

In the United States alone, white women are paid about 20% less than their male co-workers. The gap is tremendously worse for women of color; in comparison to white males, Black women are paid 38% less with Latinas being paid 47% less.

So, what should you do to make strides towards a workplace of pay equity? 

Join Ellevate Houston at their 5th Anniversary Luncheon at the newly renovated InterContinental Hotel, and tune in as Houston Business Journal's Editor-in-Chief Giselle Greenwood asks the expert Jamille Bigio, to dive deep into a special discussion regarding her studies on global gender pay gap and the solutions to achieve equality.

Walk away from this important event with valuable knowledge to be the powerhouse in driving the conversation on why it's valuable to know the basics of gender equality and equity.
