Workplace Culture & Intersectionality: What it means to
look at workplace policies with an intersectional lens
Gale King, Nationwide Insurance
EVP and Chief Administrative Officer
Join us on Black Women’s Equal Pay Day 2019 for a dynamic panel conversation with local leaders on Workplace Culture & Intersectionality.
On average in the United States, Black Women earn just 65 cents on every dollar earned by a white man. And although it is true that nationally, Black workers are disproportionately represented in low-wage occupations, there is national research that shows black workers earn less pay than their white counterparts, even when controlling for things like education and gender, and that the wage gap has gotten worse in the last decade. Private employers can help to close this wage gap by setting organizational policies that truly advance equity in their workplace. Hear from the panel on what it means to look at organizational policies with an intersectional lens and why it is important to advance equity.
