STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI)-Female faculty and staff members of Mississippi State University had the chance to learn how to bridge the gender gap in the work place.

The President’s Commission on the Status of Women hosted a luncheon with a panel of successful women throughout the area. Each woman shared personal experience stories and expertise to help women move up the business ladder.

“We have a lot areas I guess on the campus where some users may be stuck in their positions so we felt it was necessary to give them information to help them promote themselves or negotiate for better pay to kind of narrow that gender gap between men and women,” says Tamara Gibson.

Donations of Women’s clothing were taken up at the luncheon for the Starkville Christian Women’s Corps.
