Some quick facts that support the need for our work: 


*The 2016 Fortune 500 list includes just 21 companies with women at the helm—compared to 24 in 2015 and 2014. Or, to look at it another way, women now hold a paltry 4.2% of CEO positions in America's 500 biggest companies. (Source: Zarya, Valentina, Fortune 500)


By the year 2050: Women of color will make up 53% 

of the world’s population.


*The number of businesses owned by African American women grew 322% since 1997, making black females the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the U.S. (Source: Haimerl, Amy, Fortune 500)  


Studies show that women will not reach pay equity until 2059.

White women will reach pay equity by 2056.

Black women will not reach pay equity until 2124.

Hispanic and Latina women projected to reach pay equity in 2248.
