In Boston, women working full time, on average, take home $0.76 to a man's $1.00 -- a gender pay gap of 24 cents. It's worse for women of color.
AAUW Work Smart in Boston is an initiative of AAUW and the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement to empower women with the tools and skills they need to advocate for themselves in the workplace. This program is one part of the City of Boston's first-in-the-nation pay equity model.
