"Equal pay for equal work" By Lincoln Cushing Published on March 29, 2019 Kaiser Permanente 

March is Women’s History Month. On last year’s Equal Pay Day, Kaiser Permanente Chairman and CEO Bernard J. Tyson tweeted that, on average, American women must work 15 months to earn what men earn in a year. “At Kaiser Permanente, we are committed to ensuring equity in pay,” he wrote.

But the struggle for equal pay for equal work started long ago. One of its watershed moments was the World War II home front — and much of that took place in the Kaiser defense industries.

DINNER RESCHEDULED TO AUGUST 30

In light of current concerns for everyone’s health and local government recommendations, we have rescheduled our 20th anniversary annual benefit dinner for August 30, 2020. We want to protect our community and especially not jeopardize our Rosies’ health (certainly our super stars of the event!).

I sincerely ask you to buy your tickets today. Rosie the Riveter Trust relies heavily on the funds raised from this annual dinner to keep our programs afloat and our park thriving. Our Board and I look forward to seeing you on August 30 - same time, same place!

My very best,
