Lansing, Mich. – Lansing Community College’s annual recognition of Equal Pay Day will take place 8-10 a.m. Wednesday, April 6 virtually.
U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow will provide a special video address, Michigan Community College Association President Brandy Johnson will give remarks, and LCC Trustee Angela Mathews will offer opening comments.
Additionally, a speaker panel will talk about their experiences and thoughts on closing the pay gap. Speakers will include Washtenaw Community College’s Dr. Kimberly Hurns, Chief Operating Officer for the Executive Office of Governor Whitmer-Tricia Foster, LCC Trustee Samantha Vaive, and Warner Norcross + Judd’s Monique Field-Foster.
Equal Pay Day marks the symbolic day when the average woman must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.
The National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPR) began Equal Pay Day in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men’s and women’s wages.
LCC invites the entire LCC community and the Greater Lansing area to join us for a spirited discussion on how to end wage inequity.
