Money is power. It's self-worth. It's value. It's also really uncomfortable to talk about.
Come join Ladies Get Paid: Philadelphia for our first ever town hall where women will share their work war stories and together, strategize on how we can better advocate for ourselves and each other. At each town hall we ask our panelists to share their stories, and then we open the discussion to the room and encourage everyone to share or ask something. Wine and snacks will be provided.
Speakers will include:
