Reference information:
On Black Women's Equal Pay Day, Governor Cuomo's Council on Women and Girls and Essence Magazine Co-Host Forum with Women Leaders on Pay Gap Afflicting

Earlier this year, a report conducted by New York State on the status of New York women and girls found that a large wage gap between black women and white men still remains. Despite New York having the smallest pay gap of any state in the nation, long-standing societal norms have resulted in African American women earning 64 cents for every dollar white, non-Hispanic males earn. The report concluded that a multi-faceted approach must be taken to close the wage gap by moving women off of the "sticky floor," instead of the conventional approach of solely targeting the glass ceiling. Governor Cuomo has already set several policies in motion to address economic inequity, including enacting a $15 minimum wage, and banning employers, both public and private, from asking for salary history. Today's forum, and forums like it that will happen across the state will help build on those efforts, offer a regional focus, and develop a holistic approach to fostering more opportunity for Black women across the state.
