Black Women's Equal Pay Day

Black Women’s Equal Pay day, 8/22/19

Join us at The Riveter and Aries Webb-Williams are hosting a panel discussion and book launch for my new book, “Don’t Leave Money on the Table!”, along with a dynamic panel discussion about negotiation.

Equal Pay Day is the symbolic day dedicated to raising awareness of the gender pay gap. In the United States, this date recognizes how far into the year women of color need to work to earn what men earned in the previous year. In 2019, compared to white, non-Hispanic men, Black women earn $.61 for every dollar.

It pays to be persuasive — especially when it comes to your career. Negotiation can lead to higher salaries, greater startup equity, and better titles, yet most of us accept the first offer we get because we don’t have the skills or strategies to try.

Before your next career move, join us to learn key negotiation strategies you can take to the table with confidence. Throughout the evening, you’ll learn why negotiation is so important, the right (and wrong) ways to negotiate, tips and tricks for success, and how to graciously accept a disappointing result. Plus, you can ask questions and get feedback during breakout sessions after the talk.
