AAUW Work Smart is designed to help experienced working women negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. In this workshop you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play, and learn the following.

  1. How to identify and articulate your personal value
  2. How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies, including how to get a raise or promotion
  3. How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
  4. Details about the wage gap, including its long-term consequences

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.
