Diversity, Inclusion and Pay Day


Saturday, November 13
11:00 a.m.

A diverse panel of speakers will be moderated by Gloria Bastidas, AAUW Little Rock Disparities Chair. Hear their own stories that illustrate what diversity has meant and means to them. Our Zoom meetings are a quick and easy way to keep in touch as well as a way get to know each other better.

We will also discuss the upcoming AAUW LR Rummage Sale. We need volunteers to come help on November 20th. Volunteer opportunities are outlined here. (Scroll down the page.) The sale is being planned to give us a chance to see each other in person as well as keeping us safe.

National Latina Equal Pay Day was October 21. Because of the gender pay gap, Latinas were compensated just 57% of what non-Hispanic white men were paid in 2020. That means it takes Latina workers almost an entire extra year of full-time, year-round work to be paid the average annual earnings of white men. Learn more about AAUW's national Latina initiative by clicking here. Shown below is a Central Arkansas group led by Gloria Bastidas who met prior to the pandemic to discuss the special challenges facing equal pay for Hispanic women.

AAUW National's Employer Roundtable Series: Let's Talk about Fair Pay

Pay inequality thrives on silence—among legislators, leaders and even the employees most directly affected by it, who often have good reason for caution. That’s why we’re committed to creating safe opportunities for all of us to start talking. Our three-part webinar series, Equal Pay Every Day, focuses on employers in the New York area. It is designed to get employees, managers and senior leaders engaged in productive, solutions-focused conversations about pay equity.

Join us at 12 p.m. ET on Tuesday, November 9, 2021, as we engage a panel of managerial experts to share their insights, tips and success stories. Click here to register.


November 6th is National Day of Dignity
