Financial experts Mitsu Frazier Rothacher, Nicole McKelvey, and Maria Rubio sit down at this YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix Coffee Chat and discuss Wage Negotiation, particularly for women.

The gender wage gap is persistent. In 2002, women earned 80% of what their white, male counterparts made. Ten years later, we’ve only seen an increase of 2% in pay equity. The gap only widens across racial and ethnic groups. In 2022, Black women earned 70% of what white men earned and Latino women earned only 65%.

So how do we close the gap? That’s what you’ll learn by the end of the video. The information you’ll download from this coffee chat is going to be relatable, useful, and empowering. Thank you for being here and requesting to watch!
