Lean In Illinois, along with numerous Chicago and suburban partners, are working together to raise awareness and support for bridging the pay gap that currently exists for Latinas. This is a national campaign our committee is actively working to support, alongside national partners like Adidas, Lyft, P&G, Reebok and more!

November 1, 2018 marks the date in which the average Latina woman will have to work into this year to earn what the average white male earned the previous year. Currently, Latina women make 53 cents to every $1 earned by the average white male. No, that figure is not a typo.....but it is strikingly low!

Latina leaders across Chicagoland are coming together to share insights on navigating this pay gap in their own careers and beyond!
