EQUAL PAY DAY is the day each year that a woman must work until to earn what a man earned in the previous calendar year (i.e., it takes a woman over 15 months to earn what a man earns in 12 months).
There are many reasons for gender pay inequity. One is the reluctance to negotiate for higher earnings.
In honor of Equal Pay Day 2014 (April 8th), negotiation expert and Close the Gap App author, Lisa Gates provided the Center for Financial Social Work community with a webinar teaching how you and your clients can improve your negotiating skills by capturing your strengths and accomplishments in ways that frame your unique value.
Lisa Gates is a consultant, trainer and coach, co-founder of She Negotiates, and is committed to ending the wage and leadership gaps for women. Lisa is co-author of Close the Gap App and a frequent contributor to Forbes Woman. The work of She Negotiates has been featured on NPR and CNN, Fox News, New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, as well as online magazines such as Huffington Post, The Daily Muse, and Daily Worth.
