Tomorrow is Equal Pay Day, recognizing the 20% wage gap between men and women — which has a substantial global impact:
If we closed the gender pay gap 3.1 million working women and their families would be lifted out of poverty.
If we closed the gender pay gap, the average woman could afford 78 more weeks of food for her family.
At Lyft, we celebrate a diverse and inclusive culture, and we participate to make change happen — whether that’s at work or in the car.
That’s why we’re teaming up with LeanIn.Org on their #20PercentCounts campaign and donating 20% of proceeds from rides taken between 8 AM and 6 PM on April 4, up to $100,000 to organizations that serve women and families, including Dress for Success®, Feeding America, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and AAUW.
Also, be sure to tune in to watch Lyft co-founder Logan Green sit down with Facebook COO and co-founder of LeanIn.Org Sheryl Sandberg on Facebook Live today, April 3 at 2:30 PM PST to discuss equal pay. Watch live on Facebook.
Celebrating Our Female-Driven Community
50,000+ Rides Strong
Earlier this month, we shared stories from our top female drivers who collectively gave over 50,000 rides and inspire passengers every day. Read their stories here ›
UpLyft Women is an internal employment resource group that enables leadership opportunities, mentorship, and a supportive community at Lyft.
Together, we can take a stand for equality and make change happen.
Lyft is proud to support LeanIn.Org, which has determined that, in furtherance of its charitable purposes, it will in turn support four charities in equal amounts: Feeding America, Boys & Girls Club, Dress for Success® and AAUW. For every Lyft ride taken on April 4, 2017, between 8AM and 6PM, local time where the ride terminates, Lyft will donate an amount equal to 20% of the ride revenue, up to a maximum donation of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000), to LeanIn.Org in support of these four charities. Each of the four charities will receive from LeanIn.Org 25% of the total amount contributed by Lyft, up to Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000). Maximum donation amount will likely be reached early in the day, so rides taken after the maximum is reached will not add to or increase the donation amount. Rides taken in the following states will be excluded from participation and no donations will be taken from rides in: Alabama, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey and South Carolina.
