Description


AAUW has partnered up with Spaceus, Boston Women's Market, and the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement to offer this free salary negotiation workshop as a part of the city's initiative to close the gender pay gap.

Why it matters:

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.

What you will learn:

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.

AAUW Work Smart in Boston, an initiative of AAUW and the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement, is a FREE grassroots salary negotiation workshop program that helps close the gender wage gap by empowering women to evaluate, articulate, and negotiate their value in the job market.

Check-in will begin 30 minutes before the workshop.
