Wyoming Wage Gap

















The WAGE Project

Rio Tinto has awarded the Wyoming Women’s Foundation $10,000 to host The WAGE Project workshops in November. The WAGE Project seeks to bring understanding to the causes of the wage gap between men and women’s salaries, benchmark salaries in particular fields and geographical locations, as well as help women learn how to negotiate for a competitive wage based on their education and experience.
The WAGE Project workshops are offered to all interested parties, but it is tailored to high school graduates, female college students about to graduate, and women returning to the work force. The goal of the Wyoming Women’s Foundation is to help the program grow in communities across the state and to help combat the wage gap by arming women entering the workforce with the skills to ask for what they are worth.
After each workshop, the WAGE Project will present “train the trainer” sessions.  These sessions will target individuals interested in helping women advocate for their financial compensation in the work place and who would like to contribute to individuals’ financial success by helping women earn a livable wage in Wyoming.
