The Indiana Commission for Women (ICW) will provide women with crucial tools to help them succeed in today’s workforce by conducting Working Women in Transition: Building Essential Skills for Success. This year’s day-long program offers participants the opportunity to learn effective networking, listen to inspirational stories from local women and practice wage negotiation through a unique $tart $mart workshop.

Negotiating salaries is a challenge for women at all stages of their careers. $tart $mart was created by the WAGE (Women Are Getting Even) Project, a non-profit national organization dedicated to the elimination of the gender wage gap. It empowers women to avoid the gender wage gap by teaching them to benchmark and negotiate for fair and equitable salaries.

“It is our hope that we can keep moving Indiana women forward by providing them with critical information and resources that can help them to achieve economic stability and prosperity,” said Kristin Garvey, executive director of the Indiana Commission for Women. “ICW’s Working Women in Transition gives women a forum to gain critical skills that can help them transform their lives as they prepare for new opportunities.”
