Business and Professional Women of Tennessee
Day on the Hill, March 16, 2016
For over 90 years, BPW has been leading advocate of women rights in the workplace. Our organization has been instrumental in the passage of several bills both at the state and national level.
Annually our organization sets goals and activities for this event to coincide with our legislative platform.
Equal Pay Day, April 12, 2016
Each year, BPW/TN advocates Equal Pay Day events to bring attention to our number one issue - Pay Equity. Due to the gender wage gap, nationally women earn 77 cents to each dollar paid to male counterparts. Over a working lifetime, this wage disparity costs the average American woman an estimated $500,000. April is symbolic of the time in the year that a woman must work to earn the wages paid to a man in the previous year. Below are some helpful tools and ideas to assist you in planning a successful Equal Pay Day event.
