Third Thursdays: The Fight for Equal Pay

  • Twin Sports Distillery 2931 Central Avenue Northeast Minneapolis, MN, 55418 United States (map)

On average, women are paid 20% less than their male counterparts, and that ratio is even worse for woman of color. We "celebrate" Equal Pay Day on April 10, the day in 2018 where women will finally have made as much money as their male counterparts did during the 2017 calendar year. The wage gap is real, and it's time we do something about it.

Join us for a panel discussion of the wage gap and strategies for change that range from large and legislative to individual and grassroots.

Plus, to really hammer home the point, we've partnered with the MN NOW Foundation and Twin Spirits Distillery so that women will get 20% off their cocktails during the event. Men will pay full price. (We feel zero percent bad about this.)

This event is free but space is limited; use ticket link to register.
