WE ZURICH | 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EVENT
Salary differences between gender are unfortunately still a fact - even though the Swiss Federal Constitution dated 1981 and the Equal Opportunities Act dated 1996 prohibit these. There are many reasons for this disparity. Women, for example, have a different approach to salary negotiations than their male peers. While men are often self-confident and demanding, women tend to behave modestly and restraint, and often have lower expectations.
 
In two exciting presentations on the occasion of the 5th anniversary of Women in ETFs, our speakers show that the best investment is one in yourself. You will learn with which arguments you can score, what the ideal preparation is for you to enter the next salary negotiation confidently, strengthened and with joy, and how to plan an independent, secure and financially fulfilled future.    LEARN MORE
