Women face a significant wage gap in the workplace – on average, women are paid just 80% of what men are paid. Women in Planning and Development (WP+D) in partnership with the American Association of University Women is offering Work Smart, a salary negotiation workshop designed to help women claim their full worth as a planning professional.
The APA-IL Diversity Committee is pleased to sponsor this workshop.
APA-IL members receive discounted registration, use code KFH915XV.
A limited number of need-based scholarships are available with preference given to students. Contact the Diversity Committee Chair, Marcella Bondie Keenan at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a scholarship.
Workshop Details: In this two-hour workshop you'll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play and learn:
How to identify and articulate your personal value
How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies, including how to get a raise or promotion
How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences
The workshop will be facilitated by Angela Hurlock, a leader in the field who serves as Executive Director for Claretian Associates and who trains community development professionals through the Chicago Rehab Network Empowerment Series.
