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
