In this session...
Women in the United States make 20% less than men, and the statistics are even worse for women of color. When you add it up, women of color will make a million dollars less than their male counterparts over the course of their careers. And at its current pace, the pay gap in the U.S. is not projected to close for over 100 years. This is a call-to-action for us all. Join Christena Pyle, Executive Director of TIME’S UP Advertising, and Kendra Clarke, Vice President of Data Science and Product Development at sparks & honey,
for a fast-paced and topical conversation as they explore cultural trends and signals, from mainstream to fringe, that frame the pay gap problem and illuminate some potential paths forward.

- Identify and explore cultural trends that contribute to the gender and racial pay gap
