Black Women's Equal Pay Day is the number of days Black women must work into the new year in order to earn what their white, non-Hispanic, male colleagues earned last year. In 2018 Black women had to work eight months into 2018 (August 7, 2018) to have pay equity. See the 2018 Forum video below.
COVID-19 and the deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd presented the nation a unique opportunity for restorative justice and racial healing.— An opportunity to address systemic inequity and wealth inequality in America, particularly for Black women entrepreneurs, girls, and communities of color.
In its 2021 Black Womenomics Report Goldman Sachs acknowledged that by addressing banking and workplace discrimination and unconscious bias—and specifically investing in Black women—the US could remarkably change the wealth trajectory of Black women professionals and entrepreneurs; in turn improving the overall economic condition of Black families and communities across the nation. This change would close the race and gender gaps in earnings, capital access, financial information, and housing; in turn closing America's wealth gap.
