Research shows women are less likely than men to ask for what they want. Event teaches women the skills they need to ask for their next pay raise or negotiate salary.

….Minneapolis, MN September 10, 2012 – Women to gather to learn how to ask for their pay raises.

100 professional women will attend a day long workshop that will teach them how to ask for a pay raise or negotiate their next salary offer. Saturday, October 13th at the new Brave New Workshop’s Experimental Thinking Centre,  downtown Minneapolis, 824 Hennepin Avenue. 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

 Women make less than men. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2011 the median weekly earnings for women is $684 and for men $832. [1]

Men are two to three times more likely to ask for things they want and initiate negotiations.[2]

Women retire with less money than men. In 2007, the median earnings of U.S. workers age 65 years and older were $14,021 for women and $24,323 for men.[3].

Attendees will learn what their skills are worth in the marketplace, explore their personal strengths, communication skills and strategies for effectively asking for a pay raise, get comfortable asking for more than they think they are worth, and practice asking. The team of Brave New Workshop improvisers will teach attendees how to be comfortable being uncomfortable when it is time to ask for their pay raise.

Event organizer, Patty Tanji, said: “Asking for a pay raise is the quickest way I can think of to begin closing the gender wage gap. The Brave New Workshop’s Experimental Thinking Centre is perfect for learning a new skill that will take everyone out of their comfort zones.”
