Support women fighting for equal pay, paid leave and opportunities to enter high-paying professions.
Technology is the fastest growing career field, and fewer women are entering than in the past. We want to encourage more young women to embrace STEM, especially learning to code.
Unfair hiring policies and parental leave are two significant drivers of the wage gap. These nonprofits advocate for equality in the workplace.
These organization create camaraderie for women in their careers, making sure girls and women find a community, role models and support networks.
In 2017, female full-time, year-round workers made only 80.5 cents for every dollar earned by men.

Pull up a job description and you might companies describing their maternity leave or medical leave policies as “generous.” But maternity leave isn’t “generous”... it’s necessary. We couldn’t agree more with @emilymccraryruizesparza at @fastcompany: “By referring to maternity leave as generous, we’re doling out a heap of unearned credit to reluctant employers in a country that lags embarrassingly far behind not just other industrialized countries, but the rest of the world.” Link in bio!

Access to #PaidFamilyLeave is urgent for the more than 80% of U.S. families who have no paid leave. PL+US advocate Morgan shared her all-too-common experience with @time. Although Morgan had access to paid leave when she was pregnant with twins, she ended up taking unpaid time after her fiance had multiple seizures and had to spend weeks in intensive care. With her twins born at 3lbs and each with a minor brain bleed, Morgan burnt through her paid leave: “We have every incidence of privilege, and it’s still incredibly hard. I have no idea what people who aren’t similarly situated do. I can’t even imagine.” Politicians from both parties support #PaidLeave but disagree on how to pay for it, and meanwhile millions of U.S. employees are left saving the little paid leave they have or taking major financial hits when they have medical crises, need to be family caregivers, or have children.

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves… "I think it's a real travesty that as the wealthiest nation in the world, we are the only industrialized nation without a paid family leave policy" - @repstephmurphy. We’re grateful to Rep. Murphy for meeting our awesome advocates @imstephramos and @ryvantes for paid family leave last week during the Ways & Means hearing, and for her continued fight for paid leave in the U.S. Watch the full @cheddar interview with Rep. Murphy at the link in our bio.

Mother’s Day is always preceded by ads for expensive jewelry for mom and a rush to plan brunch and buy cards and flowers. But moms actually need a lot more than flowers and breakfast in bed. Moms need federal policies that make it easier to be moms, including #PaidFamilyLeave. Mothers in the U.S. are struggling, and only 17% of employees in the U.S. get paid leave from their employer. For low-income earners, that number is 6%. So why the discrepancy between how we say we should treat moms and how they’re treated by policy? Read more from @USAToday at the link in our bio!
