With Women's Unemployment Sky High, This Recession is a 'Shecession,' Expert Says

Today is Mother's Equal Pay Day. Did you know that mothers are paid 70 cents for every dollar paid to fathers? To acknowledge the wage gap, we're sharing an article that discusses how women are being impacted even further by COVID-19 and the economic downturn. (ABC News)

Women have never before in history been the face of an economic downturn.

The Looting of My Soul

In a heartfelt post, Kishshana Palmer, CFRE, shares why "all lives matter" won't mean anything until it includes black lives, and that the most important thing non-black people can do in this moment is to take action.

Does anyone have experience with mobile payments - like Apple Pay? I work at a non profit news organization so a lot of our traffic comes from mobile devices. A few people have inquired about having this as a payment option and I'm wondering what experience people may have with and if it's worth implementing. We currently take credit cards and PayPal. Thanks! Thanks. Marguerite
