Learn About The Gender Pay Gap & Equal Rights Amendment

Learn About The Gender Pay Gap & Equal Rights AmendmentTuesday, September 29, 6:30pm-8:30pm – UM School of Business Administration, Storer Auditorium, 5250 University Drive, Coral Gables

With a record number of women in the workforce and two-thirds of women functioning as the primary or co-bread winners, equal pay for women is critical to Florida’s economic security. Yet, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that Florida women who worked full time in 2013 took home 83.2 percent of what men in the state earned. Join Women’s Chamber for this dynamic panel discussion to tackle issues of unequal pay, the history and current state of the Equal Rights Amendment in Florida, its impact on local and state economies, and potential legislative and executive actions to close the gender pay gap in Florida. The event includes appetizers, wine and beer. $25 WCC Members, $35 Future Members, and FREE for Students. @WCCMiami
