TIA Talks: Gender Pay Gap Presentation Series


Contributed by Caryanne Keenan

Each year, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) Campus Action Project (CAP) grant program gives money to colleges to create community-based solutions to some of the issues examined in AAUW research. This year, AAUW awarded the CAP Grant to Ithaca College for the following project: TIA Talks: Addressing the Pay Gap Among Recent College Graduates.

TIA stands for Teach, Initiate, Advocate! TIA Talks, inspired by the popular, award-winning TED Talks, are a series of presentations by some of Ithaca College’s most knowledgeable and inspirational speakers around the issue of gender equity. This series offers ideas to change attitudes and inspire action to eliminate the gender pay gap among new college graduates. All sessions will be interactive and informal – and video-recorded for future trainings on campus and in the local community.  

All students, staff, and faculty are welcome to join us for the following presentations and events:
