GET Cities is excited to announce their partnership with Fem Equity for the BLK Women Equal Pay Day Conference. This one-day, public event is a jam-packed affair for Black women and other women of color who are early in their career, ready to scale their career, and/or changing careers. Programming will include interactive workshops, expert panel discussions, and networking opportunities.
According to 2022 data, Black women typically make only 67 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. The BLK Women Equal Pay Day Conference was designed to directly address this disparity and will offer women of color valuable information on a range of relevant topics, including how to advocate for equal pay for themselves; how to scale and advance their careers; and innovating their way through a power career.
“This experience is designed to support and expand your network, challenge your comfort zone on your possibilities, and make you aware of opportunities you didn’t know were in reach,” says Adeola Ajani, founder of Fem Equity. “BLK Women Equal Pay Day Conference is a space where black and brown women have a seat at the table and are encouraged to speak up and gain the resources needed to soar because I know we are limitless and we need more spaces to showcase that.”
GET Cities is the main sponsor for the BLK Women Equal Pay Day Conference, and the organization is thrilled to be able to empower Black women and other women of color in a practical way through this event.
Christina L. Glancy, GET Cities DC Manager, stated: “GET Cities is dedicated to supporting impactful actions that make a tangible difference in the lives of underestimated people. As we proudly partner with Fem Equity on the BLK Women Equal Pay Day Conference, we strive to bridge the gap and empower Black and brown women in their careers and success in the tech industry and beyond.”
Throughout the day, attendees will have opportunities to participate in concurrent panel discussions and networking with women from diverse backgrounds who have successfully navigated launching, scaling, and innovating in businesses in a variety of industries.
