The Program for Research and Outreach on Gender Equity in Society

Progress Logo



Achieving equity in our society requires breaking down the barriers that hold women back. While many factors are at work to create these inequities between women and men, we offer services to women and girls so they can learn to become more effective negotiators. Our efforts will not only educate, but also generate interest within our community to work towards gender equality.

Instructor Training Workshop On-Site: We would hope that our tools are user-friendly. If you purchased our tools for girls and would like to learn more about how to implement them effectively, our staff would be happy to come to your site. Learn how negotiating can become a part of your organizational culture!
