Event description

Description

Do you know how we can truly make progress in closing the gender pay gap? Ensure that women are equally represented in positions of power in the workplace. We’re talking about women as founders and funders, women in boardrooms, women as executives, etc. Not only do these positions tend to pay well, they also have enormous influence in shaping workplace culture, and as we’ve seen in 2017, many workplace cultures aren’t serving women well. Rather, they’re toxic and even dangerous at times.

So, this Equal Pay Day, we’re flipping the script and instead talking about equal power for women, which ultimately leads to equal pay.

Join PayScale at our headquarters, just south of Pioneer Square in Seattle, for #EqualPowerDay on Tuesday, April 10. We’ll hear from three speakers, each of whom will focus on a different way for women to claim power in the labor market. We also acknowledge that April 10 isn’t even the correct day to recognize the lack of equal pay for women of color. We’ll talk about that, too.

Attendees will also receive complimentary swag from PayScale, free breakfast and an on-site coffee bar for your morning caffeine fix. Doors open at 8:30am, and we'll get the panel and broadcast started promptly at 9am.

If you can't be there in person, you can still join us via our live Facebook broadcast where you will be able to watch the entire presentation and submit your questions to our speakers. Join the facebook event now to be notified when the broadcast begins. Our featured speakers this year include:

Tracy Lawrence, CEO and co-founder of Chewse

Tracy was recently named Forbes 30 Under 30 Class of 2018. Tracy has a BS in Business Administration from the University of Southern California where she was awarded 2011 Student Entrepreneur of the Year. After starting her business in a college dorm room, she has since raised $15M in financing for the company. Chewse is feeding thousands of employees delicious meals from local San Francisco and Los Angeles restaurants daily. Tracy indulges in an unhealthy love of farmers markets, pita + hummus, and surfing. She loves helping and mentoring entrepreneurs, since she wants to give back to the virtuous cycle that got her here today.

Tanya Tarr, author and regular contributor for Forbes

Tanya Tarr is a regular contributor to Forbes on topics including leadership, negotiation techniques and equal pay, and is the author of Practice Makes Power: How To Win Negotiations at Work, at Home and at the Capitol. She spent 20 years managing political and legislative advocacy campaigns across the United States, helping hundreds of people run for all sorts of offices -- ranging from local school boards to five Presidential campaigns. She has a master's degree in Performance Measurement from Carnegie Mellon University and is a certified behavioral consultant, facilitator and coach.

Cate Goethals, leadership coach and business professor from UW

A certified leadership coach and longtime business professor at the University of Washington, Cate’s many programs include the UW Foster Women Board Director Development Program and seminars on board resumes, seat-finding strategies and boardroom presence. “Women at the Top” was named by Forbes as one of the 10 “most innovative” MBA courses.

We may also offer a master class in salary negotiation as an add-on to this event (likely directly after), but would love to get a sense of how many people would be interested. The master class will likely have a cost associated. If you’d like to raise your hand, please follow this link and let us know.
