Plan to join a Black/African American Equal Pay Day rally and press conference at 11:45 AM on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at Workers United 750 East Avenue 14607 (enter building in rear). According to the NEW YORK STATE Department of Labor, “Today, Black or African American women are paid the equivalent of 64 cents on the dollar." You read that right, 64 measly cents. Work with us to improve that on August 22 by amplifying our call for change!
Latinas working full time in the New York State typically are paid just 54 percent of what white non-Hispanic men are paid, a gap of practically half — and it’s 65 perfent for black women and bad for all women.
Attend this FREE two-hour salary negotiation workshop to gain the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate your salary and benefits.
You will learn: – How the gender pay gap works and what it means for you, – How to quantify and articulate your value, – How to conduct objective market research and determine a fair target salary, and – How to create a strategic pitch and respond to salary offers.
You will also have an opportunity to practice your negotiation skills.
The AAUW Work Smart salary negotiation workshops are free.
2019 Equal Pay Day is April 2, 2019. This date symbolizes how far into the year an average woman must work to earn what white non-Hispanic men earned in the previous year.

Ladies, join Latinas Unidas as we celebrate the Holiday Season! Gentlemen, please share this message with the ladies you know
Enjoy an evening out with other like-minded women at this Latinas Unidas Holiday Mixer! We will relish some delicious Latino festive food and music, plus we will raffle lots of fun items.
Special speaker for the evening will be Latinas Unidas Madrina Maribel Torres, owner of Perfect Nutrition, who will talk about women health and wellness in the New Year.
Our holiday spirit doesn’t end here, though. As it's our tradition for our last Cafe con Leche of the year, we have teamed up with local charity “Dress for Success Rochester”. So now we seek your help toharness the power of women. It’s a good time of year to clean out our closet for any items that Santa may be bringing us this year!
We are specifically seeking for gently used, nearly-new professional attire (interview-appropriate) for women who want to enter or return to the workplace, make a great first impression and land a job that could change their life. Item such as:
- Clothing accessories (scarfs, belts)
- Handbags (work appropriate handbag and totes)
- Work-appropriate shoes (dress boots/flats/pumps), closed toe and back
- Jewelry (earrings and necklaces)
For more information about items you can donate you can visit their website:
We look forward to seeing you at our event. Thank you for celebrating the holidays with us! Hurry and click here to register online, as space is limited!
