Tuesday, March 9th, 2021 is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women’s (un)Equal Pay Day, signifying the date into this year that the average AAPI woman must work to catch up with what the average white non-Hispanic American man made in the previous year.
Lisa Senecal, Chair of the Vermont Commission on Women hosts this first episode of our new video podcast series. Lisa sat down with Bor Yang, Executive Director of the Vermont Human Rights Commission, and Vermont State Senator Kesha Ram to discuss AAPI (un)Equal Pay Day, the impact of inequity, and their suggestions for change. Our Executive Director Cary Brown provides the introduction.
Stay tuned for more episodes in this new Equal Pay Day video podcast series throughout 2021.
