Event description

Description

Women working full time in the United States typically are paid just 80 percent of what men are paid, a gap of 20 percent — and it’s even wider for black women, Latinas, and Native women.

Attend this FREE two-hour salary negotiation workshop to learn how to confidently and successfully negotiate your salary and benefits packages. In this workshop, you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-playing 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 wage gap, including its long-term consequences

You will also have an opportunity to practice your negotiation.

Facilitator: Laurel McCabe, Ph.D. is a full professor of Psychology at Sonoma State University. She is the Coordinator of the Psychology M.A. program, a prior chair of the Psychology Department, and teaches and advises on careers following the bachelor’s degree.

Please join us for this awesome opportunity to learn how to negotiate your first salary, and set your career on the right track! Students from any local institution are welcome to attend with a student email address and ID. All attendees must register. If you are coming from off-campus, parking is available for a fee, and you can purchase a parking pass at the yellow parking machines in General Parking lots near the Student Center. Once you have entered the Student Center, go to the 2nd Floor and find us in the Sonoma Valley Room.
