The experiences of women of color are unique AND intersectional. This why this year we launch the first Women of Color in the Workplace® Study.

RESPOND TO THE STUDY

Conquering the Concrete Ceiling Series

Women of color are facing a different type of barrier, and it is a more difficult barrier to overcome. The glass ceiling does not apply to women of color. Experts are calling the ceiling for women of color, "concrete," because one cannot envision how it must be broken. Therefore opportunities for women of color may seem less tangible. This four part workshop series confronts some of the challenges women of color are facing in the workplace today, ways we can combat those challenges, and techniques to get ahead.

Grab Part One & Part Two


The gender pay gap has not changed much over the years. Every year it persists. According to IWPR, the pay gap between men and women is not expected to close until 2059. Black women will wait until 2130, and Hispanic women will have to wait until 2224 for equal pay. We can’t afford to wait 200 years. Companies can do their part.
