WGS 222 - Learn to Negotiate


Participants in this course will gain an understanding of societal factors driving income inequality and pay disparity in the United States, particularly with an intersectional focus. We will also cover historical and current efforts to combat the pay gap, including labor organizing and legislative efforts, and an understanding of income inequality and the ongoing harm of the pay gap (with focused study on the pay gap on federal and state levels, as well as within a student’s desired profession). After setting this foundation, students will explore resources and strategies to assist with negotiation in their future workplace (this includes workshops and exercises geared to helping students define, articulate, and claim their expertise).
