Women are typically paid only 80% of what men make doing the same work, and the gap is even wider for women of color. This can result in the loss of over a million dollars in a women’s lifetime. This workshop, presented by the American Association of University Women (AAUW), is geared towards students - especially women and underrepresented individuals - to learn the necessary skills to negotiate your way to your ideal salary.
AAUW Start Smart is specifically designed to teach you how to negotiate salaries for a new job. In every two-hour workshop you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play and learn:
- How to identify and articulate your personal value
- How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other strategies to use when negotiating
- How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
- About the pay gap, including its long-term consequences
Attendance is free, but registration is required.
