AAUW of Puerto Rico and our state officers have embarked upon a campaign to get 40k women in Puerto Rico to take the free, online Work Smart seminar. When national statistics show that Latinas make 54 cents for every dollar paid to a man, we know we have lots of work to do. Though learning to negotiate for better pay, the purpose of the seminar, is not the whole answer to closing the pay gap, it is an empowerment tool that all women can use.
Our campaign dovetails with the National campaign and we will work for those 40K to take the seminar over the next 5 years. It is an ambitious goal! We know!
