A Note From Alder New York CEO Nina Zilka on International Women's Day

The truth is that I wish that Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day didn’t need to exist. But it turns out we very much still need a special month for women. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2020 white women's earnings were 82% of men, and even less for women of color. At every level of education, women earn less than their male counterpart of the same race and ethnicity. And this pandemic we're still in has set women’s labor force participation back more than 30 years. This is doubly frustrating when you learn that when women are in the labor force running companies, they typically hire 2.5 times more women to their teams.

Because of all this, I am so grateful to you, our community, for supporting our woman-owned and led business. Your emails, comments, and support have kept me going when these systemic inequalities could otherwise get me down. At Alder New York, we are driven by the need for inclusion, both in our business and in the products we make, and we quite simply could not do it without you.

I can't wait for the day when women don't need a special day, but in the meantime, we'll be here hiring, working with, and lifting women up.
