On Monday Mayor Martin Walsh’s Office of Women’s Advancement and the American Association of University Women kicked off a blitz of free salary negotiation workshops to train over 350 women in honor of Equal Pay Day on April 12.

The goal of the workshop blitz is to reach the target of 1,000 women trained since the launch of the workshops last fall. The workshops will take place in a variety of locations across Boston.

“It’s time to stop talking about the wage gap and time to start doing something about it,” Walsh said. “I am proud of the work we have done since we launched the workshops last fall, and to honor Equal Pay Day we will provide hundreds more women with the tools they need to close the wage gap.”

In September of 2015, Mayor Walsh kicked off a 5-year partnership with AAUW to train 85,000 women. By June of 2016 the goal was to train 1,000 women. This workshop blitz in honor of Equal Pay Day will attain that goal early.
