VENUE: Various locations throughout NYC
National Latina Equal Pay Day is the day when Latina pay catches up to that of white, non-Hispanic men from the previous year.
This year it is being observed on November 20, 2019 and we are giving you access to 10+ immersive workshops to change this and help craft your roadmap for professional and entrepreneurial success in 2020!
