Michelle Gyimah is the Director of Equality Pays, a gender equality consultancy dedicated to closing workplace pay gaps.
Michelle’s unique understanding of employee engagement and workplace challenges enables her to embed practical application into her consultancy as she is also a passionate advocate for enabling women to get equal pay and close their pay gaps. She does this by supporting their equal pay investigations and teaching women workplace negotiation skills to allow them to get more of what they want.
One of Michelle’s most popular offering is: The Negotiation Collective
So many people think that negotiating is always about work and only ever about money. But this is only half the story.
Improving your negotiation game is about getting clear on what you want more of and getting better at asking for it. In fact, you’ll find that you negotiate everyday in some way without you realising it.
This membership is all about helping you get better at it by dealing with your mindset and putting together strategies that work for you.
Just by being here you’re now ahead of 68% of women who never negotiate. Congratulations you’re in the top 32%!
At times it will feel uncomfortable, but I promise you, putting in this work will eventually put more money in your pocket and bank account, steer your career in the direction YOU want it to go in and will positively impact other areas of your life.
Who can say no to that?
Getting negotiation right involves understanding what is currently holding you back. This is why this membership focuses on mindset + strategy.
Each month new content from guest experts and training from me will be added to make sure that you have all the tools you need to get asking for more.
So if you’re a woman in business ready to negotiate more confidently with your clients or an employee tired of being overlooked and undervalued at work, then this collective is for you.
As well as having access to all these training, you’ll also get access to a private Facebook group where you can talk and grow with other women on the same journey.
What do current members think about The Negotiation Collective?
“Genuinely pleased I joined this course as it helped me question and uncover some of my behavioural patterns that needed an overhaul.
I feel that I’ve made a step forward which will better prepare me for pay negotiations and tougher business conversations.” Marketing Manager, UK
“Michelle has given me very important advice for my salary negotiation – that got me a 15% raise! While her advice has helped me find the right arguments in the negotiation, it is the continous support from Michelle that makes even more of a difference.
Her motivational and empowering posts have given me the courage to even ask for a raise, when I normally would have been too shy!”
Content Manager, Austria
“I was offered a full time role but at the lowest end of their salary scale.
I negotiated, pointed out my years of experience, that I’d be able to get more done in less hours, that I was bringing some very specific expertise that they needed.
I ended up with a higher salary than I asked for AND I got the flexible working I wanted – 4 days a week with one day a week working from home.
Chuffed to bits.”
