Event: MPLS MadWomen—Pay Equity Panel


By Egotist / /

It’s 2019 and the pay gap still exists. So on Equal Pay Day (April 2), MPLS MadWomen is going to hash out this issue with a panel of professionals in human resources, gender studies and gender equity. Join as they explore the theories around why there’s a gap, talk about the reality of that gap here in Minnesota, and provide insight around what you can do tomorrow to start closing it. They’ll cover everything from negotiation, if variations in salary are ok (or not) within a title, knowing your market value, and a healthy discussion about pay equity in Minnesota.
