2024: Business As a Force for Democracy

In June, as part of our monthly member meetings, WeTheChange launched a five-part series focused on how businesses can support democracy.

Created in collaboration with Sarah Bonk of Business for America, the series kicked off with a session covering the importance of businesses upholding democratic principles and providing immediate steps businesses can take, such as giving employees time off to vote, providing voter registration resources and supporting the Protect Voters from Deceptive AI bill.

See our events calendar for dates and topics of upcoming democracy sessions. Potential members may attend this entire series free of charge—we aim to spread the word widely about the importance of this work and how businesses can effectively navigate politics and have a positive impact.

2023-24: Equal Pay, Pay Equity, Anti-oppressive Pay

Through our Equal Pay Campaign WeTheChange is working to move the needle on pay equity for women and others who face pay disparities. 

When purpose-driven companies unite and make change, we become examples for others to follow. As a group, women earn less money than men, and women of color earn least of all. This is a direct result of the sexist, racist, patriarchal, capitalist system we are trying to change.
