About the Event
You're probably wondering why there are different prices based on your self-identifying racial group. We all know that race is a social construct, but there are serious implications to these identities - especially as it relates to your pay. This brunch will focus on raising awareness on the pay equity gap for women by setting the prices for the brunch at the percentage rate diverse women make as reported by the American Association of University Women in the Indy Star. For every dollar a white man made in central Indiana in the year 2017, a central Indiana woman made $0.79. However, when we break this down by race, there is a deeper story to tell.
By leading equity through practice, we hope to have robust conversations on women's pay equity and its impact and connection to various aspects of women’s issues. Every attendee will walk away with a gift bag filled with women-owned products created right here in Central Indiana. Come join other women in equity in an intimate environment and walk away with a network of support. We can't wait to be in community with you!
*Not everyone subscribes to racial categories or wants to be boxed into one racial group. These categories are only to help illuminate the broader issue around pay equity based on race. If you do not feel comfortable electing a racial category, please select Central Indiana Women, which is the average pay equity gap for all Central Indiana Women compared to the average Central Indiana Man's $1.
JUNE TOPIC: HEALTH EQUITY FOR WOMEN
Join us as we learn about how social determinants of health are a women’s equity issue, and discuss what we can do to advance equity for all women in all areas of health.
Gender affects several social determinants of health, including access to education, employment, income, social status, vulnerability to abuse, a difference in health-seeking behavior, access to health services and societal expectations. These differences come from socially constructed roles, including expectations in the household and differences in the patterns of employment and pay.
Mental health, maternal health, holistic health, physical health… how do social determinants of health affect these issues, and in turn, affect women at different intersections of race, sexual orientation, disability status, socio-economic status and more? Women’s health inequities challenge structures of dominance, and give us all power to define who we are, reclaim our strength, and restore our rights.
Whether you are a community leader, corporate business woman, entrepreneur, stay at home mom, or anything in between, this discussion is for you!
