Our SDG Action

Number of people taking this action: 250 or more
In France, the gender pay gap is around 23%. Training women to negotiate their wage is one possible driver to reduce this gap (with awareness-raising actions for companies and the fight against stereotypes). In the framework of the CSR platform of the Nantes metropolitan area, the CSR Chair of Audencia Business School, women’s networks, business associations and trade unions joint their forces to design a free training for women on negotiation of their wages, called #NégoTraining. The training module (3 hours) is moderated by experts in gender equality and members of civil society. Since September 2017, we have trained 750 women in Nantes and our objective is to train 5.000 women in 2020. The first results of the impact measurement tool we developed, shows that women increase self-confidence, negotiate more and obtain better results.
