Equal Pay Day 2019

Equal Pay Day is the symbolic day when women’s earnings “catch up” to men’s earnings from the previous year. Despite the Equal Pay Act, the gender pay gap persists; women are typically paid just 80 cents for every dollar paid to men — and that number has barely budged in a decade. Think 80 cents is bad? The pay gap is even worse for women of color.

Hustle vs. Alignment

There’s a lot to be said about hustle. To me, hustle has always been the ability to keep going despite your circumstances. I grew up in poverty, raised by single mother who worked night and day waiting tables – just to put food on the table and clothes on our backs - but somehow managed to show up to every school play, fundraiser and parent-teacher night. I’m a first-generation college student.
