Some portions of the article suggest the source of this wage / funding gap could be due to the notion that women do not negotiate as much as men do for their start-up research packages and wages.  Negotiation can be critical in helping ensure you are fairly paid.  Many of you have probably heard or researched how to be successful when it comes to negotiation, but I thought I would share a website I have used in the past to help me prepare for a job related negotiation.

Love to hear what the graduate community thinks and / or if anyone else knows about any other helpful resources!  Post on the Facebook!
