Women with the same achievements and skills as their male counterparts are not advancing as far or as fast; 63% of the time, men are offered higher salaries than women for the same role at the same company. Women in tech tend to undervalue their market worth, asking for less pay 66% of the time, and often ask for 6% less salary than their male counterparts.
It’s time we get comfortable with the uncomfortable -- our paychecks depend on it. Join us once a month as we practice the art of self-promotion. Be prepared to participate, this is a safe, supportive space for each of us to break down what makes us so uneasy with talking about, and promoting ourselves and our accomplishments.
Bring your own lunch - water and soft drinks will be provided - or call in via google hangouts if you can’t get away (please be prepared to be on video!).
This is the first in a monthly lunch series brought to you by Tech Ladies Phoenix and Thinkful. A link to google hangout will be sent out the morning of each event.
Thinkful is a new type of school which provides 1-on-1 learning with industry experts to bring high growth tech careers to ambitious people everywhere.
To join the Thinkful network visit thinkful.com.
