FREE salary negotiation workshops for women offered by the Commission + American Association of University Women [#SalaryNegotiation #EqualPayForWomen #Harrisburg, Pennsylvania]
In 2019, women in Pennsylvania are earning 80 cents on the dollar compared to men. The Pennsylvania Commission for Women wants to change that.
This fall, the Commission, a state-run volunteer organization that advises Governor Tom Wolf on matters important to women, will host a series of salary negotiation workshops for women.
The workshops will be offered for FREE through a partnership with the American Association of University Women, a national advocacy organization that promotes gender equality.
These educational workshops will be held at locations in Harrisburg, York, Wilkes Barre, Scranton, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, beginning on Sept. 24, 2019 at Widener Law Commonwealth in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
“…There are far too many employers who refuse to even acknowledge the gender pay gap, much less work to eliminate it. Women deserve equal pay for equal work, and I commend the Commission for Women for providing this tangible service to professional women throughout the commonwealth as we work in Harrisburg to find sustainable solutions.”
– Governor Tom Wolf
According to Randi Teplitz, chair of the commission, equal pay for women benefits all Pennsylvanians, regardless of gender, by making a financial impact on families, communities and the broader economy.
“These workshops will give women the essential tools they need to empower themselves in the workplace, especially as they advocate for promotions, pay raises and better benefits.”
