Event description

Description

AAUW Work Smart is a FREE two-hour salary negotiation workshop designed to give women the skills and confidence to advocate for themselves in the workplace.

Participants learn how to research competitive salaries, articulate their skills, qualifications and experience, and ask for—and get—the pay they deserve.

Why it 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.

AAUW Work Smart in Pennsylvania is a state-wide initiative of AAUW PA and the The Pennsylvania Commission for Women. As a part of our efforts to close the gender pay gap in PA, we have partnered together to launch a pilot Work Smart salary negotation workshop series.

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