The College of Business believes that developing cultural competence is necessary
for every business professional to actively participate in our global society. Through
workshops, programs, and outreach efforts, we aim to promote a work and study environment
that is welcoming to people of all cultural backgrounds. The Social Justice Workshop
Series is one means by which we accomplish this goal. These one-to-two hour interactive
workshops engage students, faculty and staff members in various social justice issues
designed to ignite discussion and broaden participants’ perspectives.
Social Justice Workshop Series Presents:
"Graduating to a Pay Gap"
Thursday, March 28
Rockwell West, Bohemian Auditorium Rm.116
One year after graduation, a woman with a bachelor's degree will only be paid about
80% of what her equally degreed male colleague earns. Fast forward ten years and
she's only making 69%.
Please join us as Amy Blackwell brings awareness to the frightening reality of the
gender pay gap and how this disparity will affect future graduates as they enter
into the working world.
Amy Blackwell, MA, owns Blackwell Communications LLC and volunteers as national
director-at-large and Colorado public policy co-director of the American Association
of University Women (AAUW). Amy is also a certified facilitator of $tart $mart Salary
Negotiation Workshops that teach college women how to benchmark and negotiate fair-market
value for their first jobs after graduation.
