Come celebrate WE BOS Week with Boston Women's Market and Boston Knotlight! We are excited to host an evening of discussion, drinks, and empowerment with special speakers, activities, and vendors.
Wow, we can't believe it's been nearly 1 year since our first Boston Women's Market. So much has happened in that short period of time and we're ready to celebrate with all of you! Save the date for our 1 Year Anniversary marketplace at District Hall in Seaport!
We've partnered with the American Association of University Women, Spaceus, and the Boston Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement to offer a free salary negotiation workshop as a part of the city's initiative to close the gender pay gap.
Why it matters:
Women working full time in the United States typically are paid just 80 percent of what men are paid, a gap of 20 percent — and it’s even wider for black women, Latinas, and Native women.
4228 Washington Street
Roslindale, MA 02131
