Pioneering Pay Equity: Strategies to Bridge the Gap, Own Your Value and Negotiate Your Worth

When women are empowered to lead and given the tools and support to do so, they make choices that change history. Why is it, then, that women are not compensated to reflect our power? Why is it that even in today’s age, women in the U.S. make 77 cents for every dollar a man makes on average? In this interactive session, leaders and negotiation experts will share how we can lead the charge to help women achieve pay equity. Hear a conversation with senior executives from leading companies who are taking concrete and public steps to address these issues, and also share tools to help you become a powerful and confident asker. By sharing today’s most successful negotiation strategies, attendees will learn how to monetize your strengths and potential and own your value — not only in your paycheck, but by the position you hold.
