On April 2, 2019, many across the country rallied their communities to highlight Equal Pay Day, the symbolic day that marks the point in the year at which women's earnings will finally “catch up” to what men earned in the previous year alone. What this masks is the racial gender pay gap -- the even wider pay gap most women of color face in their careers. Latinx Women’s Equal Pay Day isn’t until November 20th and the gap is widening (last year’s was on November 1st). To move pay equity forward for all women, we must acknowledge and center the unique experiences women of color face.
Join The Riveter and #WeAllGrow Latina in acknowledging Latina Equal Pay Day! It will be a powerful evening of conversation and community building that seeks to explore phenomenal Latinx women leaders as they share their stories and strategies to navigate work across industry.
This event centers the experiences of Latinas at work and positions of leadership. Allies and champions invested in strengthening their allyship and advocacy for Latinx and other women of color at work are also encouraged to attend!

We’ll shine a light on gender pay equity throughout the year, and will bring you ideas from the leading minds working toward pay equity.

About #WeAllGrow Latina Network
#WeAllGrow Latina Network was founded in 2010 based on a simple yet revolutionary idea: to build a community of authentic voices and connections for Latinas because when one grows, we all grow. We stand strong in our mission of elevating the voices and stories of Latinas via the power of community. #WeAllGrow Summit is the go-to professional conference for Latinas and the only one of its kind. Sold out every year since its launch in 2015, we are back for a sixth year in 2020 of bringing together a sisterhood of the most influential community of Latina creators and entrepreneurs.
