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.
