LGBTQIA+ LATINX LEADERSHIP IN CORPORATE AMERICA: INTERSECTIONALITY AND BELONGING
June 24, 2021, 2pm ET
Many Hispanics in the United States identify as LGBTQIA+. According to a 2018 study, Latinx millennials are the most likely millennial demographic in the U.S. to identify as non-straight. This signals a major opportunity for advocacy in Corporate America. Attend this webinar to hear corporate leaders share their unique intersectional perspectives, expand on their professional experiences, and provide insight into how to create an environment of belonging for LGBTQIA+ Latinos at your organization. We’ll discuss how to support intersectional populations at work and how the distinct lens of intersectional leadership benefits companies.
Fair Pay: The American Water Journey
June 24, 2021, 10am PST/1pm ET
The average woman in the U.S. makes 82 cents for every dollar her white male counterpart makes, and the inequity does not end with this number. Black women make 63 cents for every dollar and Latinas make 55 cents for every dollar. Latina women make barely half of what their white male counterparts are paid for the same work.
What is being done in the utilities and communications industry to address fair pay? Several years ago, American Water, the nation’s largest and geographically diverse publicly held water and wastewater company started their journey to fair pay. NUDC is pleased to have Valoria Armstrong, Nicholl Salamone and Kate Dephilippo from American Water explain their strategies and the actions the company is taking. Join us as they discuss their commitment to Inclusion & Diversity including their journey to fair pay! This webinar is ideal for human resource, compensation, I&D professionals along with those on executive leadership teams and regulators.
