Register for free Equal Pay salary negotiation workshops
TEMPE, Ariz - Even though the federal Equal Pay Act became law in 1963, women continue to experience wage disparities nationally. The City of Tempe is working to narrow the gender pay gap.
The Tempe City Council voted to create an initiative to ensure pay equity based on gender, with a pathway to get there that includes pay negotiation training classes as well as an Equal Pay Business designation.
The free classes are open to anyone who lives, works, or studies in Tempe. American Association of University Women (AAUW) leads the workshops, which are designed to help community members build confidence and skills around salary negotiation, market worth, tools of persuasion, and business strategies. Each class features the same information. Register for classes at www.tempe.gov/equalpay
