2020 Closing the Gap: Salary Negotiation Skills for Women
Did you know that on average, women must work through 2020 and into mid-April of 2021 to make the same amount of money that men earned in 2019 alone? Statistically, women of color would have to work even longer: Black women until August, Indigenous women until September, and Latina women until November of the following year.
Instead of hosting Closing the Gap in person, we are providing a throwback of one of our favortite editions from 2018. We look foward to hosting the live event again next year.
Watch this video to learn about closing the wage gap with salary negotiation skills told by a panel of industry professionls and keynote speaker from the KC's Women's Foundation as they talk through their personal experiences.
