Salary Negotiation Panel

4:00 p.m. – Center for Science & Technology — Room 103

Did you know most employers expect you to negotiate salary and other benefits when they offer you a job? Furthermore, did you know women are often less likely to negotiate salary, further widening the gender pay gap? Panelists including Sally Reasoner from Ascend Indiana, Michael Elorreaga of VanVleet Insurance, and Earlham Director of Career Education Jen Gose, will discuss how to go about negotiating salary after a job offer. In celebration of Women's History Month, the CCE is co-sponsoring this event with the Multicultural Resource Center.

Clothesline Project

Multicultural Resource Center

The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts with messages and illustrations that have been designed by survivors of violence and their supporters. The purpose of the project is to increase awareness about this issue, to celebrate the strength of survivors, and to provide another avenue to break the silence that too often surrounds these experiences. Our public must be informed about violence and act to prevent it. We will have information on how to recognize and prevent violence, how to reach out to survivors, and how to make a difference in the community. Additionally a resource person will be available at the display on March 25 (10 a.m. – Noon) and March 28 (Noon – 3 p.m.).
