LANSING, Mich. – Women's Network will host a breakfast in recognition of National Equal Pay Day, 7:30-9:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 10 in the Michigan Room at the Gannon Building Conference Center, 422 N. Washington Square, Lansing.
Equal Pay Day is dedicated to raising awareness of the pay gap and symbolizes how far into 2018 women will have to work to make as much as men did in 2017. In the U.S., working women make an average of 80 cents for every dollar men make. For women of color, that disparity is even higher. Michigan’s pay gap ranks 32nd in the nation, with women making an average of only 78 cents for every dollar men make.
The keynote speaker for the breakfast is Kelly Rossman-McKinney, founder, chief executive officer and principal at public relations firm Truscott Rossman. She has been one of the best known public relations and crisis communications experts in Lansing for many years.
Following the breakfast, all are encouraged to attend the Equal Pay Day rally at the Capitol Building from 1-2 p.m. The rally is free and open to the public.
