Gender Pay Gap Focus of Next CUES® RealTalk! Session

MADISON, Wis.—Groundbreaking online discussion series CUES RealTalk! is set to tackle the gender pay gap at its next session, happening March 16. CUES RealTalk! covers important, but often hard to discuss, issues impacting the credit union industry and is focusing on the theme Women in the Workforce: Because $0.82 is NOT Enough.

“Our goal with CUES RealTalk! is to address challenges to help professionals in the industry explore ways to overcome and work through common barriers, and provide a safe place to discuss real solutions,” said Dawn Abely, CUES’ SVP/Chief Sales & Member Relations Officer.

Attendees will hear from a panel of experts, including Elizabeth Mannix, Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Management, Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. Mannix will offer insights into the systemic issues that are directed at women, such as negotiation skills, power and influence, and how these issues cascade and are related to networks, power and success in negotiation.

“Our panelists will make it a point to provide actionable ideas and solutions that our attendees can put to use immediately,” said Abely. “It’s important that men also attend CUES RealTalk!, so they can join the conversation, be part of the solution, and better understand these challenges and how they can support their colleagues.” 

Upcoming sessions are:  

  • Session 2: The Gender Pay Gap, March 16, 2022
  • Session 3: The Confidence Gap, June 22, 2022
  • Session 4: The Double Bind, September 21, 2022

Because the topics CUES RealTalk! covers are so important, this event is being offered at no charge, and all industry professionals are encouraged to attend. The first session, covering The Great Resignation, is available for playback here.
