Despite the progress that has been made over the last few decades, women as a whole still get paid less than men. 81 cents on the dollar, to be exact.
So, what is the deal? Why hasn’t the pay gap been officially closed?
For starters, many of us humans feel uncomfortable discussing money (thanks mom, dad…society!). Then, for those of us who finally work up the courage to ask, when our proposal doesn’t get taken seriously or we don’t get the “yes” that we wanted, we can quickly retreat and accept defeat, versus standing in our truth and advocating for the salary that we deserve.
Learning how to speak up and hold your ground in the face of a challenge, especially around “sensitive” topics like money, can be difficult to say the least. Skills like how to do the research, build the case for your request, and navigate a hard conversation (or human) effectively can make all the difference.
From getting your mind under new management to structuring the conversation and dealing with rejection, this workshop will help you to successfully navigate asking for equal pay.
You will walk away with the following:
- Strategies for researching and preparing for the conversation
- Communication techniques for uncomfortable situations
- A framework and steps for how to design hard conversations
- Tips for dealing with rejection
- Techniques to hold yourself (and your boss) accountable
