Goldberg Launches Statewide Salary Negotiation Training Program for Women

Treasurer Deborah Goldberg has announced the creation of the statewide salary negotiation training program for women called “Just Ask.”

This is the first program of its kind in the country.

“With this new, statewide salary negotiation program, we are helping women across Massachusetts to ‘Just Ask!’ to be paid what they are worth, because when women are paid equally, we all benefit. These workshops will give women the essential tools they need to empower themselves in the workplace, especially during salary negotiations,” said Treasurer Deb Goldberg.

The Workshops

Facilitators for the workshops will be trained members of the Commission on the Status of Women and workshops will be held at the fifteen community colleges across the state.

Both the Commission and colleges will serve as outreach ambassadors to attract participants to the workshops. These initial workshops are licensed by AAUW and will be geared toward women entering the workforce.

The sessions will be two hours and will educate participants on recognizing the gender wage gap and will give them the tools they need to be successful.

"This program will address a critical issue and continue our mission of promoting rights and opportunities for women throughout their lives. The gender wage gap affects every family in our state and actively addressing wage inequality through salary negotiation will give women the resources they need to achieve economic security," stated Jill Ashton of the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women. 

This new initiative is launched in collaboration with the Massachusetts Community Colleges Executive Office, the Community Colleges Presidents, the American Association of University Women (AAUW), and the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women.
