Evelyn Murphy and the Wage Project Come to Brandeis, 2014

Evelyn Murphy

On March 14th, 2014, WGS invited Dr. Evelyn Murphy, former Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, and founder of the grass-roots organization “WAGE Project, Inc.” to speak at Brandeis as part of the 19th annual Tillie K. Lubin Symposium.  In her talk, entitled “Work Smart, Earn What You are Worth,” Murphy spoke about the gap in wages between men and women, why this occurs, and what can be done about it.  In conjunction with this lecture, a representative from the WAGE Project held two workshops to give students hands-on experience in salary negotiation, and trained Brandeis faculty and staff to offer similar workshops in the future.
