New Jersey Women Business Leaders Forum

September 28, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The gender pay gap hasn’t closed much in the past two decades. In 2022, women earned only 82% of what men earned, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of median hourly workers of both full-time and part-time workers. Twenty years ago, that figure was almost the same at 80%. 

However, the wage gap is narrowing considerably for younger women and that bodes well for the future. Last year, women ages 25 to 34 earned an average of 92 cents for every dollar earned by a man in the same age group – a gap of 8 cents instead of the average 18 cents for women of all ages. 

Educated women entering the workforce today increasingly resist the discriminatory practices that pushed many of their mothers and grandmothers into underpaying occupations generations before. Confident women who are unafraid to negotiate for higher salaries can close the wage gap even more. 

At the New Jersey Women Business Leaders Forum, powered by NJBIA, Sept. 27-28, experts in career development, HR and law will discuss strategies for effective salary negotiations, signing bonuses and other tips that enable professionals to be paid salaries commensurate with their education, skills and experience without regard to gender. 

The event will be conducted at Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott, 1 Hotel Rd, Newark, NJ 07114.

The conference fee is Member – $350; Non-Member – $450.
