Equal Pay Day marks the point in the year at which women's earnings will finally match what men made the previous year.
To raise awareness about the fact that women in the U.S., on average, earn 20% less than their male counteraprts, Lean In DC is supporting dozens of area businesses who are participating in #20PercentCounts and donating 20% of their proceeds on April 10th to organizations that support women and families impacted by the gender pay gap.
This year's participating businesses will donate to The Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Dress for Success, The American Association of University Women, and Feeding America.
Planning to take part in our post-Equal Pay Day happy hour or other Equal Pay events? Be sure to share your experiences with us - and give a shout-out to participating businesses, like Bar Deco! - on social media using #20PercentCounts and #LeanInDC.
