Congratulations to WFRN member Ann Bookman on this innovative program. 

"Of 52 workshop attendees interviewed as part of a new study by the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy at University of Massachusetts Boston, nearly half either negotiated a pay raise at their current job or a starting salary at a new job that bumped them up to or above the market rate.  In short: They achieved pay equity, which is precisely the goal of the workshops."
