Help us raise awareness of pay inequality in Chicago and around the world.

Equal Pay Day Chicago 2019

Thursday, March 28, 2019 │ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Daley Plaza │ Clark & Washington Streets │ Rain Location: Lobby

Each year, Equal Pay Day is recognized worldwide to bring greater awareness to racial and gender pay disparities.

The 9th Annual Equal Pay Day Chicago will be held in advance of this year’s nationally observed date of April 2 – which symbolically marks how far into this year the average woman must work in order to earn as much as the average white man last year. The local event is both a focal point to raise awareness of pay equality and a platform for organizations to collaborate across the state.
