She has been a leading force in helping the chapter make its voice heard on issues such as intersectionality, street harassment, and reproductive rights. An American University graduate with a master’s in public administration, she works with the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland as a philanthropy associate.
Closing the Gender Pay Gap
The DC Metro Chapter’s Kate Black is helping women learn the negotiation skills they need to succeed in today’s job market. She along with her fellow chapter members helped launch the chapter’s Work Smart initiative in conjunction with AAUW and the DC Mayor’s office. Over the next five years, they will train over 15,000 women in salary and benefit negotiation. This program is designed as a workshop to help women to evaluate, negotiate, and articulate their worth confidently in the job market.

Getting Their Dollars in Order
We all know that the topic of financial management can seem dull and daunting. But the YWTF New York City (NY) Chapter, led by Jennifer Mayfield, has found a way to make financial management interesting. The chapter hosts a series of financial management seminars, led by two of their board members who work in the finance industry, to help local women gain economic security.
