Today is #LatinaEqualpayDay & we’re joined by an inspiring tribe of #Latinas to discuss the Gender Pay Gap, it’s social impact, what they face daily in the workplace and what they’re doing to get their fair share.

At POWER On Heels Fund, Inc., it is #LatinaEqualPayDay every day!👠👠
It is where we desire to have real social impact. Minimizing the #GenderPayGap & #Inequity they face daily in the marketplace…one #LATINA at a time.
More than 50 years after the passage of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, Latina’s typically earn only 54 cents for every dollar earned by white, non-Hispanic men and must work nearly 23 months to earn what white men earn in 12 months. In Texas, the rate is 44 cents.
