Rep. Mark Veasey and special guest State Rep. Nicole Collier are hosting a discussion Saturday with female business leaders and activists across North Texas to discuss how women; especially women of color, can grow in the workforce and overcome gender stereotypes.

“We can’t wait any longer for pay equity,” Veasey said in a news release. “If working women in Texas were paid the same as men for equal work, the poverty rate would be reduced by 51 percent. That’s why I’m excited for a discussion with female leaders across North Texas to share how we can continue to elevate women and women of color in the workforce.”
