The Fundamedios Paygap Toolkit
A toolkit for Latina journalists and training sessions to reduce the pay gap.
Through eight months of research we found that latino journalists do the same job as their white peers with fewer resources, and less pay. In addition, the intersectionality of race and gender results in cumulative discrimination against female journalists who are of Latino origin, who earn on average 37% less than their white male peers. To address this issue, Fundamedios created a toolkit to train journalists to improve their negotiation skills.
