MBA Chic: Why the Latina Equal Pay problem persists, and how to make progress

December 8. 2022

Executive Director Noreen Farrell is featured in a MBA Chic article about Latina Equal Pay Day:

She suggests that companies should assess the diversity of leadership teams and examine the characteristics and demographics of those who are being promoted as well as those who are not. “There are both cultural and structural steps that can be taken to make these roles more accessible,” Farrell explains. “Hire a third-party reviewer to have honest discussions with your employees and to conduct other forms of research to determine the specific barriers that your Latinx employees face. Discern whether bias affects performance evaluation or opportunities for advancement. Be transparent about problems and set bold progress goals.”

Farrell says Corporate America can be more visible in promoting pay equity for Latina workers by first participating in conversations, and then implementing policy change. “They should lead their industries by implementing progressive pay policies and sharing their best practices,” says Farrell… “More equitable workplaces for Latina workers will also require paid family and sick leave and reasonable pregnancy accommodations so that Latina workers do not have to choose between their jobs and their families,” adds Farrell.
