WOMEN & MONEY
"This thing about being underpaid: as a women you can think everything's fine, and then you find out you're being paid 20%, 50% less than someone else. I just felt horrified, appalled, hurt, wounded - it's not to do with the money, it"s to do with value: you feel, I'm undervalued."
A 2016 report from the Chartered Management Institute showed that a female manager would have to work for at least 14 years beyond her pensionable age of 65 to earn the same amount of money as a male counterpart.
Additional Financial Statistics:
Some of our sister city networks run a formal women & money programme; we do not have a formal programme, but from time to time we run events on negotiating a salary raise / asking to be paid as a consultant, personal pitching, pensions and investments, etc.
If you would be interested in attending or organising one of these events, please let us know at email@example.com
