Stand Against Racism

Did you know…

Women are 57% of the U.S. labor force, yet women, especially women of color, are underrepresented in leadership across fields.

Women of color outnumber White women & all men in college degrees, yet are still paid less & hold less leadership positions. 

Black women make 62 cents for every dollar made by their White male counterparts.

The gender pay gap is even worse for Latinas, who make 54 cents for every dollar made by White men.

Though women make up half the US population, they make up less than 20% of Congress. 

Only 4% of all elected officials in the U.S. are Women of Color

Women currently hold 4.4% of CEO positions at S&P500 companies. Guess how many are Women of Color? One. 

Only 14% of executives in Fortune 500 companies are women.

Though women make up 75% of nonprofit workers, women are only 45% of all CEO & ED positions.

Even in women-dominated fields e.g. nursing & social work, men are paid more & promoted faster than women.

Even female nonprofit EDs make, on average, 66 cents for each dollar earned by male counterparts.
