Support Action for Gender Inclusion in the Workplace.
As a social enterprise, Gendelity reinvests any profits. The cost of operating this non-profit workshop is covered by participants’ ticket purchases, Gendelity’s investment and your sponsorship. Here’s an opportunity for your organization to take action for gender equality.
Many organisations include gender equality in their mission statement or on job descriptions. Go beyond words with action, evidence-based action.

“Every day women find out they are paid less than male peers. They want to be paid fairly. “Jane Morgan, Founder Gendelity

“You’ll never earn more than €36 thousand unless you go and do a PhD.” This inaccurate and heart-breaking advice given to a young Master’s science graduate in 2019, made us so mad that Gendelity was founded.

– less qualified, less experienced, unproven in our industry and company, male with polished CV, paid €10k more than his female “peer” –
“It became apparent that he was incompetent. Nothing happened until I approached my boss and we, eventually, came to a new agreement on responsibilities and salary. I did not like that I had to force their hand and I left a few months later. The relationship was soured in my eyes by the fact that I had to force their hand by complaining and, when the promised remedy wasn’t forthcoming, actually resign before they made me an new offer. [It] still makes me mad to think of it! “

Why Support Women to Negotiate
Well-publicized research informed us that ‘women don’t ask‘ (Babcock and Laschever, 2007). More recently research indicates that women are well equipped to negotiate on behalf of others (“other-advocacy”), and that more women are asking. Unfortunately, negotiating for themselves is laden with pitfalls, pitfalls that men don’t face.
“What I want to know is ‘how to negotiate without burning bridges’.”Professional Woman in Product Development, Technology Industry, Dublin
Women are more likely to be unsuccessful when negotiation for pay and promotion, and may incur penalties. Penalties include being perceived as overly demanding and insufficiently nice. In short, it can hurt to ask. Preparation and awareness of where the sparks lie equips women to negotiate successfully. And negotiation pays; women who negotiate earn more than those who do not (Lean In). => Inquiry Here About Sponsorship
An Evidence-Based Approach To Salary Negotiation
More optimistically a focus that considers individual goals, explores hesitancy and a focus on self-efficacy improves success. The Gendelity evidence-based approach to salary negotiation addresses these challenges in a safe environment to equip women to advocate for themselves and ask effectively.
