Equal Pay Day: A Lunch and Learn Event

Tuesday, March 28, 2017, 7:00 PM

It is far beyond time to improve women's salaries. In the state of Florida, a woman makes 87 cents on average for every dollar a man makes as of 2017. Attend the Equal Pay Day Lunch and Learn Event to: Hear the personal stories of women impacted by pay inequity right here in Jacksonville. Learn what actions you can take to help eliminate pay disparity in the United States. Receive more information about the Helen Gordon Davis Fair Pay Act - Senate Bill 410 and House Bill 319, jointly introduced by Senator Linda Stewart and Representative Lori Berman, which aims at closing the pay gap in Florida. Network with other influential leaders in the city of Jacksonville that are committed to achieving fair pay for women.  We invite you to wear red as a demonstration of support, since women are still in red when it comes to fair pay.
