Event description

Description

The gender wage gap costs a full time working woman an average of $435,000+ over the course of her career. A woman needs to work 11 additional years to achieve income equality with a male counterpart. And if that wasn’t bad enough, when a woman reaches retirement age, she earns in less social security, since benefits are determined by wage history, and her savings must stretch about 4.9 years longer based on average life expectancy. Learning to negotiate has never been more essential for women.

This workshop will cover:

  • the negotiation basics you never learned
  • how to deal with awkward salary questions
  • why you should always make the first offer
  • proven woman-specific strategies backed up by research
