(L)Earning What You’re Worth: Salary Negotiation (2 hrs)

Women make 77 cents on the dollar (stats are lower for women of color), and can lose $1.2 million over the course of a lifetime. This workshop is designed to help participants understand why the pay gap occurs, and equip them with concrete tools to assess their strengths, be their own best advocate and negotiate higher salaries at any stage of their career development. You may also be interested in our online salary negotiation module, which you can do at your own pace.
