Women in BCM: Closing the Gender Pay Gap at DRI2020!

If you’re a woman in BCM, this is one workshop that you literally can’t afford to miss! “Breaking Through: Closing the Gender Pay Gap and Positioning Yourself for Salary Success” will be offered at DRI2020, which will be held March 1-4 in Savannah, GA. Brought to you by the DRI Foundation’s Women in Business Continuity Management Committee and run by the American Association of University Women (AAUW), the Smart Salary Negotiation Workshop addresses your key concerns. 

Nearly 60 years after the passage of the Equal Pay Act, women continue to earn less than men do for the same roles in nearly every occupation, including business continuity. While the pay disparity is a result of many factors, gender differences in salary negotiation play a role. Let’s focus on what we can control. The DRI Foundation’s WBCM Committee is proud to sponsor the AAUW’s Work Smart Salary Negotiation Workshop. Participants will come away with the skills to determine market worth based on experience, performance, qualifications, and job responsibilities as well as the confidence to successfully negotiate for fair pay and benefits for the rest of your career with proven strategies. This session will be female-focused, but men are welcome to attend.
