The book for February 2021 is: “The Truths We Hold: An American Journey” by Kamala Harris. After the Vice President’s historic swearing in, we could not imagine a greater kick off to our year!

This book paints a beautiful picture of a purpose driven, determined and inspiring woman of color that has shattered glass ceilings. Vice President Harris’ story paints a picture of a forward-thinking visionary that has never forgotten her roots.

We think you will enjoy this book and believe this will lead us to a thought-provoking discussion!

Please support your local bookstore if you can safely.

If not, this book can be found on Amazon in Kindle, paperback and hard cover formats: https://www.amazon.com/Truths-We-Hold-American-Journey/dp/

If you do not finish the whole book, please feel free to attend and join in as we chat and catch up.

Women of Color in the Workplace® Conversations for Equal Pay

Live via Google Meet

The average Asian American / Pacific Islander woman is paid $0.87 for every $1.00 paid white, non-Hispanic men, losing hundreds of thousands of dollars over a 40-year career.

But, that's only part of the #AAPIEqualPay story. For certain communities, the wage gap is far greater. Vietnamese women earn $0.67, Hmong women earn $0.61, and Burmese women earn only $0.52, making them some of the lowest paid people in the nation. Even within high earning fields, Asian women are paid less than their male counterparts. "Model-minority" rhetoric is racist, classist, divisive, and just plain wrong.

Asian American Women Equal Pay Day is February 23rd, 2021. Join Women of Color in the Workplace for our round table discussion to create awareness about the pay gap impacting Asian American women.
