Event description

Description

AAUW Work Smart is a two-hour salary negotiation workshop designed to give women the skills and confidence to advocate for themselves in the workplace. Attendees will learn how to confidently and successfully negotiate their salary and benefits packages, as well as:

  • 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 wage gap, including its long-term consequences

Attend this workshop, empower yourself with the tools to negotiate for fair pay, and become a part of the movement to close the gender pay gap.

Check-in will begin 30 minutes before the workshop.

WHY THIS MATTERS:

On average, women working full time in the United States are paid 80 percent of what men are paid, a gap of 20 percent — for women of color and other marginalized groups, the pay gap is even wider. At this rate, the pay gap isn't expected to close in Wisconsin until the year 2067.

Negotiating your salary is something you can do not only for your own economic security but also to help close the unexplained pay gap.
