Fuck the Pay-triarchy: Knowing Your Worth and Negotiating Skills with Ria Chattergoon
The Black Indigenous People of Color Adult Industry Collective (BIPOC AIC) is thrilled to host lawyer Ria Chattergoon in the upcoming event titled Fuck the Pay-triarchy: Knowing Your Worth and Negotiating Skills with Ria Chattergoon. This event is for BIPOC adult industry performers. This event will be held on October 22 at 9pm-10pm EST/6pm-7pm PDT.
Ria Chattergoon is a Florida attorney and certified mediator with extensive experience in employment law. She has successfully litigated and mediated cases alleging wrongful terminations, discrimination, retaliation, harassment, wage and hour, and violations of non-compete agreements on behalf of both employers and employees. Ria regularly provides advice and counseling to individuals seeking to negotiate employment contracts. Ria also regularly assists executives negotiate compensation packages and serves as a third-party neutral investigator for discrimination and sexual harassment claims.
Have you as a BIPOC adult industry performer encountered challenges with negotiating pay? Has the anxiety or concerns around negotiating gotten in the way of asking for the pay you deserve? This event is intended for attendees to come away with confidence going into the industry negotiations and an affirmation of their worth. Too often BIPOC individuals find themselves questioning “Am I being too outrageous?” or “Is this too big to ask for?”, and this event will help individuals set aside those fears and questions in order to ask for what they are really wanting.
Skills and knowledge attendees can gain from this event include information on workplace discrimination law, the equal pay act, and how those interact with race. Ria will walk attendees through how to negotiate for equal pay as well as how to spot retaliation for asking not to be discriminated against as well as when you ask for equal pay. Additionally, Ria will offer approaches to navigate industry black-listing when an individual faces retaliation against self-advocacy for equal pay.
Ria spoke to why negotiating skills are important in any workplace–“In life in general, we know today women and people of color are being paid three quarters of what their white counterparts are being paid. It is important to know how to negotiate beyond that and be recognized for our talent.” A recommendation Ria makes is for folks to do their due diligence and research the pay standards of the industry. Having that knowledge before negotiation can make a difference.
This event will have a Q and A portion for attendees to ask Ria questions.
