WSIS Prizes Contest 2019 Nominee

DevelopHer


Description

Lauren is a tech woman who is leading the way for other tech women to earn what they deserve. After learning that a male colleague was hired at 50% more than her, she learned to negotiate and tripled her salary. But, she didn't stop there. She started a movement to bridge the gender income gap one woman, one negotiation at a time. She travels the country teaching women how to negotiate for the salary they deserve and also delivers her program online for free believing the these foundational skills should be accessible to all women. And she's getting real results - women are earning $80K, $65K, 36%, ... more! Lauren couldn't sit back and continue to say "someone should do something about the gender pay gap." She realized that while she may only be one woman, she is someone and she can start something that truly empowers other women and that's exactly what she's doing!
