Women from diverse communities are making it in Massachusetts -- from the corner office in companies, politics, and non-profits to self-owned businesses and start-ups. While promising, Black, Indigenous, Latina and Asian women are still being paid less and remain scarce in the workforce, C-Suites and boardrooms of too many industries in Boston and beyond. Are Women of Color on the Rise? examines the work that needs to be done to level playing fields in the Bay State.
Our panelists are women from academia to C-Suites who will discuss the challenges of leadership, equity and diversity women of color in Massachusetts face.
The free event, at 6pm today, will be moderated by Paris Alston (above), co-host of GBH's Morning Edition and "The Wake Up" podcast from GBH News.
