Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has introduced a new 2020 plan on Friday to improve the working conditions and pay for women of color, relying on the power of executive orders that she would sign Day 1 of her presidency.

The big picture: Warren says these executive actions are part of a broader plan to ensure equal opportunities and financial security for women of color. Warren has outlined plans for universal child care, affordable housing and student debt cancellation.

Warner Bros. on Monday named BBC Studios Americas president Ann Sarnoff as the first female chair and CEO in company history, Variety reports.

Why it matters: Sarnoff will replace Kevin Tsujihara, who was ousted earlier this year in as a result of sexual misconduct allegations. In addition to overseeing production of film, TV, digital, video games and consumer products, Sarnoff will report to WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey as the company looks to launch an ambitious streaming platform with former Time Warner assets acquired in a merger last year.
