2019 Latina Equal Pay Day

November 20, 2019 is Latina Equal Pay Day. That means Latinas have to work all of 2018 and until November 20 in 2019 to catch up with what men earned in 2018 alone. Regardless of their occupation, level of education, or years of experience, Latinas are still paid less than men. 


In an effort to bring attention to this problem and help close the gender pay gap, Lean In Michigan is hosting two Salary Negotiation Workshops.


The American Association of University Women (AAUW) Work Smart Salary Negotiation Workshop program is designed to help you negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. In the 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


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. 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.
