Close the Gap: Combatting Pay Inequality

This webinar has passed. Watch recording below.

Since the Equal Pay Act was signed in 1967, the wage gap has been a very real issue – with women today earning 84 cents for every dollar a man earns (that gap is even worse for many women of color and members of the LGBTQIA+ community).

According to the Center for American Progress, the gender pay disparity has cost American women an estimated $61 trillion since 1967. At the current rate we are moving, it will take at least 30 more years to close the gap completely. So how do we fix it? Let’s talk about it during this 1-hour, informative webinar hosted by our friends at #GirlsClub.

You’ll learn how the wage gap affects your recruiting and company morale (and the legal implications it has), tips on how to close the wage gap by starting within your organization, and advice on how to advocate for yourself and get the pay you deserve.

How to Set Smart Boundaries at Work and Home

This webinar has passed. Watch recording below.

Why are boundaries so hard for so many? Sometimes we feel we HAVE TO DO IT ALL – at work, at home, in life. Rarely do we see saying “no” as an option, and many may think that having boundaries labels you as “difficult to work with” or “unwilling to be a team player.”

During our conversation, we will discuss how setting boundaries is a form of self-care. It helps to create a clear guideline of how you would like to be treated.

Whether you struggle to set boundaries, communicate them or stick to them, you will want to join us for our 1-hour, informative session hosted by Lauren Bailey and #GirlsClub and sponsored by KnowBe4. Panelists include: Kristin Westberg, Kelly O’Horo, Loryn Eriksson-Martini, and Suzanne Ballenger.
