Know Your Worth – Closing the Wage Gap Orientation
Oct 13 @ 5:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Know Your Worth - Closing the Wage Gap Orientation

Women in America earn 82 cents for every dollar that white men earn. The amount a woman is paid changes based on her race as well. Black women make 62 cents, Native women make 57 cents, and Latinas are the lowest at 54 cents. Lost wages mean women have less money to support themselves and their families, save and invest for the future, and spend on goods and services. Families, communities, and the economy suffer as a result.

Join YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix in empowering women to close the wage gap! We offer a two-part educational series geared towards providing women with the skills and knowledge to advocate for themselves and their families during wage negotiations. Part one will be an orientation, where we will assist you to connect for the online course. The second part includes a review, practice, and coaching session that connects you with our coaches and others committed to closing the pay gap for all women!

Session One: October 13th from 5:30pm to 6:00pm

Session Two: October 27th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Have you ever thought, “That’s what I should have said!” when reliving a conversation you had a day, week, or month ago? If so, be sure to join us for Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda!

As the end of the year approaches and we make plans to see friends and family (even if it’s virtually!) we are offering a conversation to practice mindful and effective responses to overt and covert racist, sexist, and bigoted comments and conversations.

Winter Social Justice Book Club @ Zoom
Nov 17 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Winter Social Justice Book Club @ Zoom

This book contains 15 shorts stories and every 3 weeks, we will pick a story to discuss and learn from, continuing our anti-racism work.

This book vividly presents – in their own words – the personal stories, experiences and reflections of fifteen prominent white anti-racists. They recount the circumstances that led them to undertake this work, describe key moments and insights along their journeys, and frankly admit their continuing lapses and mistakes. They make it clear that confronting oppression (including their own prejudices) – whether about race, sexual orientation, ability, or other differences – is a lifelong process of learning.

Let’s confront oppression together.
