It's Equal Pay Day! I'd say let's celebrate, but the facts are kind of a bummer. LeanIn.org reports that women on average are paid 20% less than men—and this disparity is often even more pronounced for women of color. I worked with Lyft to create a gif to get the word out about this wage gap, and help inspire people to work together on closing it up. Lyft teamed up with LeanIn.Org for their #20PercentCounts campaign and is donating 20% of proceeds from rides taken today to organizations that serve women and families, including Dress for Success®, Feeding America, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and AAUW. Just make sure you take those rides between 8 AM and 6 PM to make sure you're payment is included in the #20percentcounts donation pool.
