In it’s 10th year, themed “The Future of Women of Color” our three month virtual conference features keynote addresses and panel discussions led by experts in their fields. Attendees, also have the opportunity to explore and engage our virtual career rooms, networking spaces, resources, exhibitor marketplace and more. Annually, our conference draws women who are eager to connect, strategize, build community, learn and inspire. We are excited to kick off our Virtual Women’s Conference, on March 31st during (in celebration of) Women’s History Month.
Whether it is Pay Inequity in the Workplace or Barriers to Capital for WOC Entrepreneurs, it is a fact that Black, Indigenous, Latinx and other women of color, are disproportionately impacted by the gender wealth gap and are economically marginalized. The COVID-19 recession or “shecession”, has deepened and exacerbated pay inequality by gender and race, which will have lasting impacts.
This session will explore the wealth gap that continues to perpetuate inequalities. We will also discuss the essential tools and solutions that are necessary to tackle this issue in all its forms. Addressing this concern is not only important for the financial well being of women, but an essential step in rebuilding our economy and must be a focal point in recovery efforts in the present and future.
