Spring 2018 Session Recap: Let’s Talk About Money: Understanding RIT Pay Practices
Date: Tuesday, April 17, 2018
All full-time faculty members were invited to attend an interactive workshop titled “Let’s Talk about Money: Understanding RIT Pay Practices” where participants were shown salary-related resources available today and explored how to shape future thinking and discussions regarding salary.
This was a hands-on, 80-minute session where participants discussed what RIT has learned from past studies regarding faculty salary and explored salary-related resources. Learning objectives included realizing learnings from past salary studies conducted at RIT, obtaining salary-related information from Oracle and HR website and checking accuracy, and understanding RIT salary processes. Facilitators were Professors Margaret Bailey (KGCOE), Carol Marchetti (COS/Math), and Maureen Valentine (CAST) from the AdvanceRIT Leadership Team, as well as Judy Bender and Christina Ross from RIT Human Resources. The event was co-sponsored by P&T SMARTS, CREW, and Advocates & Allies.
Over 30 individuals attended this workshop, and the survey responses were positive. When participants were asked what they might do differently as a result of participating in the session, they responded with comments such as “become a better advocate for myself and others” and “be willing to have a conversation with my chair and dean.” The session encouraged great conversation and brought some of RIT’s pay practices to the surface.
