The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
A panel of speakers will present information on the economic status of women in the Dallas area, the high poverty rate and its effect on our future workforce. Latina leaders will address their success in overcoming obstacles as they advance in their careers. Learn about best practices and ways we can work together to lessen the pay gap.
Thursday, October 8 at 10:00 a.m.
Dallas County Schools, Technical and Training Center
5151 Samuell Boulevard, Dallas
Please join us to help raise awareness of the very large pay gap experienced by Latinas and begin the conversation to address this issue.
