Legal Momentum's Senior Economic Empowerment Attorney,  Seher Khawaja, was quoted in a CNBC article on how the proposed changes to the NYC salary transparency bill would have a harmful effect on workers of color. 

"The hiring diversity concerns are “insincere at best,” says Seher Khawaja, senior attorney for economic empowerment at Legal Momentum, an advocacy group. “It’s bold that that the business community has tried to make arguments that pay secrecy allows them to pay Black women more, for example, and that advancing pay transparency would undermine that goal.”
