Pay Black Women
Imagine having to work seven extra months just to earn the same compensation as your male co-workers. If you’re a Black woman in the United States, that’s a likely reality.
Articulate Your Value at Work
You’re not bragging about yourself. What you’re really doing is putting forth your capacity — putting forth your qualifications — in a way that … [will] resonate with the person that hopefully is going to hire you … but also stepping out of the many gendered norms about what is and isn’t appropriate about how women can express themselves.”
Women and Student Loans in the Time of COVID-19
The global pandemic is making the country’s student debt crisis much worse, and women bear the greatest financial burden. Unless policymakers act to address student debt and bolster the U.S. economy, millions of women college graduates will face unprecedented burdens that will hamper their economic security for years to come.
AAUW refuses to accept a future of unequal pay.
At the end of the day diversity is not only the right thing to do, it’s good for a company’s bottom line. Without action to close the pay gap, unequal pay will be a stark reality for women and families for the indeterminate future. That’s a scenario AAUW refuses to accept.
