Surving Capitalism: A Financial Literacy Workshop for Womxn of Color

SDL is excited to be collaborate with IMPACCT Brooklyn and bringing a financial literacy workshop catered to women of color.

Over andover again we hear about the disparity in pay for womxn of color. The rates are alarming and we understand that as womxn of color the path to financial stability is stacked against us and we have historically been exploited for our labor and excluded from fully participating in the job market with fair wages and benefits. How do we understand our money and make fiscally safe decisions? This workshop aims to give us tools that we can use daily in achieving healthy financial habits that we can build and practice in our daily lives. #equalpayday ||#SisterDiaspora #aLoveEthic

According to a 2016 Pew Research Poll: “White and Asian women have narrowed the wage gap with white men to a much greater degree than black and Hispanic women. For example, white women narrowed the wage gap in median hourly earnings by 22 cents from 1980 (when they earned, on average, 60 cents for every dollar earned by a white man) to 2015 (when they earned 82 cents). By comparison, black women only narrowed that gap by 9 cents, from earning 56 cents for every dollar earned by a white man in 1980 to 65 cents today. Asian women followed roughly the trajectory of white women (but earned a slightly higher 87 cents per dollar earned by a white man in 2015), whereas Hispanic women fared even worse than black women, narrowing the gap by just 5 cents (earning 58 cents on the dollar in 2015).” Source: Huffington Post.

The workshop will cover topics such as:

  • Budgeting
  • Maintaining Good Credit
