Are you paid what you’re worth? Come hear about pay negotiations from my expert, Katie Donovan.
Katie Donovan, founder of Equal Pay Negotiations LLC, is an equal pay consultant who works with individuals to negotiate the pay and benefits and with policy makers on the unintended biases in the hiring, promotion, and review processes. She is a co-president of the Massachusetts branch of the American Association of University Women and a founding and steering member of The Massachusetts Equal Pay Coalition. Katie is the architect of banning salary history questions to close the gender pay gap. The recently signed Massachusetts Equal Pay Law is the first law in the nation to include such a provision. Many states and municipalities are following Massachusetts’ lead and introducing bills and executive orders to end the practice. Ms. Donovan’s speaking experience includes Harvard, NASDAQ, Women in Construction, SEIU Interns and Residents, and Mom Corps. Donovan is frequently quoted by and contributes to media including Mashable, Biz Women, Forbes, NPR, Huffington Post, and more.
