The Day for Pay Equity event has been postponed until Fall 2020. Information is being sent to all those who had registered for the event to let them know how to find out when and where the event will take place then.
AAUW Milwaukee is proud to be a sponsor for “A Day for Pay Equity,” a city-wide initiative to bring WorkSmart, AAUW’s proven salary negotiation workshop, to the Milwaukee area on April 2, 2020. The initiative – planned by a collaborative of women’s professional organizations – aims to train 1,000 women at 20 workshops on one day, in parallel with AAUW’s pledge to train 10 million women in salary negotiation by 2022.
Why is negotiation so important? AAUW’s research on the gender pay gap shows that, one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men. Women who work full time take home about 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. And over a lifetime, those lost potential earnings add up.
Women who negotiate increase their potential to earn higher salaries and better benefits packages. By negotiating fair and equitable salaries, you’ll be better able to pay off loans, buy the things you want and need, and even save for retirement.
Workshops will be held throughout the day, across the city and run for two hours each. Join the movement to close the gender pay gap.

Know Your Rights: Workplace Sexual Harassment

Title VII is a federal law that prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, and religion, and it applies to employers with 15 or more employees, including federal, state, and local governments. Even with Title VII’s protections, many people across the country still face sexual harassment in their workplaces. Read more
