It’s always Black Women’s Equal Pay Day


LeanIn has a mustread report on the state of Black women in corporate America, a lone Adidas employee goes on strike, professional hockey goes woke, and guess who isn’t running a Fortune Global 500 company?

But first, here’s your Black Women’s Equal Pay Day week in review, in Haiku.

Work, work ‘til August,
just to make the same money!
The EVP of

XYZ don’t know
my name; he always calls me
the other Black girl.

Work, work ‘til August,
just to make the same money!
I anchor a home,

a village, and big
ideas. In my mind I’m
the CEO. Can

you see me work,
work my way there? Or are you
standing in my way?

Take a well-earned break this weekend.
