Underpaid in Pittsburgh?

A panel discussion on dismantling racial and gender pay gaps

Presenters: Jessica Lutz, AnupamaJain, Jeff Shook

“In Pittsburgh Black women earn just 54 cents on the dollar when compared with the earnings of whitemen.” (PghPost-Gazette, 11/19/2020) Several organizations are working to study and address issues of low pay and pay disparities. The Gender Commission of the City of Pittsburgh has studied racial and gender pay gaps and created programs to address the issues, such workshops on negotiation. The Pittsburgh Wage Study (in Pitt’s School of Social Work) reported that low wage workers “display remarkable resilience and resourcefulness in the face multiple hardships: food insecurity, housing instability, utility cutoffs, and difficulties affording health care or medication.” The Pittsburgh Black Worker Center is building the grassroots power of Black workers to promote racial and economic justice in the workplace and throughout local communities. The Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management discovered that the gender pay gap is closing for employees of nonprofit organizations. Representatives from each of these initiatives will engage participants in a panel discussion moderated by Jessica Lutz, Academic Advisor at Pitt, member of Staff Council, and host of the podcast “Line of Work.”
