in collaboration with
AAUW Work Smart is designed to help you negotiate for a new job as well as for earned raises or promotions. In every two-hour workshop, you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play and learn:
- About the gender wage gap, including its personal consequences
- How to quantify the market value of your education, skills, and experience
- How to conduct objective market research and determine a fair target salary
- How to create a strategic pitch and respond to salary offers
Why is negotiation so important? AAUW’s research on the gender pay gap shows that, one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than their male counterparts. Women who work full time take home 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. And over a lifetime, those lost potential earnings add up.
Women who negotiate increase their potential to earn higher salaries and better benefits packages. By negotiating fair and equitable salaries, you’ll be better able to pay off loans, buy the things you want and need, and even save for retirement.
