Talent is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not.
Black women are paid 39% less than white men. While this ratio is slowly improving, it won't reach parity at its current pace for another 100 years.
Black women ask for raises at the same rates as white women, but they get worse results. The pay gap actually widens at higher-age education levels, beginning at age 16 and growing from there.
This problem reflects the systemic inequality that is prevalent in so many fields in America. It's an issue that will require reform across many fields in the public and private sectors.
As one small part of this, the Opportunity for Black Women Scholarship will be awarded to a Black woman at any education level and field of study.
