Description

This January, AAUW, The Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement, SMASH Boston, and the PRX Podcast Garage are pleased to invite you to a free AAUW Work Smart salary negotiation workshop & gathering in Allston!

The event will kick off with the free workshop. Stay after the workshop for a gathering with SMASH Boston, and meet audio and media makers working to smash the patriarchy! We will be hanging out enjoying drinks and storytelling.

About Work Smart in Boston:

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.

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.

Learn how to confidently 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


Check-in will begin 30 minutes before the workshop.
