More Info

Equal Pay Day Chicago is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, April 4, 2017, in Daley Plaza (Clark and Washington) starting at noon.  Rain location is the Daley Center lobby.   Each year, Equal Pay Day is recognized world-wide to bring greater awareness to the wage gap experienced by minorities and women.  In the United States, the mid-April date symbolically marks how far into a new year the average woman must work to earn as much as the average man did in the previous year.  Join us!  Equal Pay Day Chicago is both a focal point to raise awareness of pay equality, and a platform for organizations to collaborate across the state. We invite you to be a part of this effort.  Contact us through email or any of the social media platforms below. In 2016, we were joined by FM Supreme, Women in Comedy,  Awesomely Luvvie, Melissa Josephs (Women Employed) and SallyLou Loveman.   Watch last year's event on CAN-TV   Thank you to our generous sponsors:      American Association of University Women (AAUW-Illinois)     Illinois Federation of Business Women (IFBW)      Professional Women’s Club of Chicago (PWCC)   Equal Pay Day Chicago includes the following  Supporting Organizations:AAUW-ChicagoAAUW-Chicago LoopAAUW-Wheaton/Glen EllynAAUW-Palos OrlandABA Commission on Women in the ProfessionAffinity Community ServicesAlpha Kappa Alpha, Chi Omega Omega ChapterArise ChicagoBellows Law GroupBlacks in GovernmentChicago Area Women's History CouncilChicago Bar Association YLS Women in the LawChicago Commission on Human RelationsChicago Foundation for WomenChicago Women in TradesChinese American Service LeagueCoalition of Labor Union WomenCook County Commission on Human Rights and Women's IssuesCook County Office of the PresidentCrux CreativeDePaul University/Women's CenterEnterprising and Professional Women-USAEvelyn Murphy, Founder of the WAGE ProjectFederally Employed Women-Windy CityIllinois Association of Hispanic State EmployeesIllinois Department of Human RightsIllinois Department of LaborIllinois Federation of Business Women's ClubsIllinois State Bar Association Standing Committee on Women and the LawLawyers' Committee for Better HousingLeague of Women VotersMujeres Latinas en AccionNational Employment Lawyers Association-Illinois ChapterNorthwestern University School of Law/Women's Leadership CoalitionNOW-ChicagoNOW-IllinoisNOW-North/Northwest SuburbanProfessional Women's Club of Chicago (PWCC)Restaurant Opportunities CenterSargent Shriver National Center on Poverty LawUS Department of Labor, Women's BureauUS Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)Women EmployedWomen's Bar Association of Illinois (WBAI)YWCA Metropolitan Chicago     #EqualPayCHI #EqualPayDayCHI
