(Un)Happy Hour - Honoring Equal Pay Day

Location: Campus Center, Room 301

The Women's Center and Office of Equal Opportunity are hosting "(Un)Happy Hour" to honor Equal Pay Day on April 2nd. Equal Pay Day was created in 1996 to show the inequity amongst pay wages between men and women in the workforce. This date symbolizes how far into the next year women must work in order to earn what men earned in the previous year. Data shows that women of color earn even less, some women's wages being as low as earning $0.53 for each $1.00 made by men. To raise awareness on our campus, we are hosting this event which will include a "pay gap bake sale*," a panel discussion, and interactive trivia games throughout the room.

We will also be joined by representatives of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and Hawai‘i County Mayor Harry Kim's Executive Assistant Rose Bautista. They will present the proclamation of Equal Pay Day and share a few words with our community.

We will have free mocktails and baked goods, while supplies last!

*Our "bake sale" is not an actual sale; all items will be given out for free.
