Virtual Spring Training spans the first 12 weeks of MAIP (Multicultural Advertising Intern Program) and serves as a key development period before Fellows start their agency experience. Fellows get the chance to virtually engage with learning materials from industry thought-leaders on topics such as creative ideation, the changing landscape of influencer marketing, and how to land their first ad job! The learning and development aspect of MAIP is the main reason why 96% of our fellows land full-time jobs after finishing the program. For more information on MAIP, you can reach us at maip.aaaa.org.

At Ladies Get Paid, we believe the first step in effecting change is through educating and empowering ourselves. When it comes to negotiating though, many of us still struggle. This 4-week online course will change that.
This class is for those who are serious about getting paid what they deserve – and willing to do the hard work that gets them there. Our program will not only give you the talking points but also the courage to use them. We match you with other students to share your challenges, practice your pitches, and continue to support you after the last day of class. We’ll also have special guest lectures by some of our favorite lady heroes 🙂
Launching February 6th, this program consists of 2-hour webinars hosted every Monday at 7pm EST. Between classes, you are expected to touch base through Slack or Google Hangout with your accountability group and be ready to share your responses to the homework assignments by next class. If you have to skip a class, there’ll be a recording of the session plus notes.
It’s weird to put a number on yourself. But we all have to do it – whether you’re negotiating for a job or raising money for your startup – you need to translate your value into money and then defend it. Let’s talk about it.
This town hall (the first of 2017!) will feature the stories of women who’ve gone through this, whether it’s a freelancer convincing a client to pay her day rate, or a startup founder pitching a VC to give her millions of dollars. This town hall will include a new element: breakout groups, led by each of the speakers. As always we encourage you to speak up and share your story. And then go get paid. *
Speakers will include:
Jordana Kier, co-founder of LOLA
Julia Rothman, illustrator & co-founder of Women Who Draw
Jacquelyn De Jesu, founder of SHHHOWERCAP
Hillary Black, co-founder of Kay & Black
Ashley Feinstein Gerstley, aka the Fiscal Femme
Jamie Lee, coach at She Negotiates
Vivian Giang, Editor in Chief at Deloitte and freelance journalist
