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 will learn:

  • About the gender pay gap, including its long-term impact on women and our economy
  • How to identify and articulate your personal value
  • Tools to conduct objective market research and benchmark a target salary and benefits
  • Strategies to ask for—and get—the pay you 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 Wichita is a city-wide initiative of AAUW and the Junior League of Wichita. As a part of our efforts to close the gender pay gap, we have teamed up to lead 24 Work Smart salary negotiations workshops from September 2019 through the summer of 2020 to reach and support women across the city.

Attend a 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.
