Event description

Description

On average, women working full time in the United States are paid 82 percent of what men are paid, a gap of 18 percentage points — this gap widens for many when breaking the data down by race and ethnicity, age, disability status, motherhood, gender identity and sexual orientation. In New York City women typically earn $6,735 less than their male counterparts every year. Women.nyc is aiming to close that gap by training 10,000 NYC women in salary negotiation, in partnership with the American Association of University Women (AAUW).

Our salary negotiation workshops give you the strategies you need to make the strongest possible case for a new job, a raise, a promotion or better benefits. You’ll leave with a refreshed sense of confidence, killer negotiation skills and a new support network to help ensure you make what you’re worth. Through methods like facilitated discussion and role-playing, you’ll 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.

Women.nyc is a groundbreaking New York City government initiative that inspires women to advance their careers while providing real tools to do so.

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.

Q.E.D. is the only independent, woman-owned and operated venue for the arts in Astoria, Queens in NYC. It's a labor of love, really. As a small community space, we're very proud to pay artists, producers, teachers and creatives for their work and provide a free space for performers of all types at our open mics.

At Q.E.D. you’ll find stand-up comedy shows with performers ranging from the beginner to the very famous. We also have arts and crafts workshops, writing classes, board game meet ups, storytelling, movie screenings, watch parties and more. Our affordable classes and shows are as diverse as Queens itself. With 100 or more events each month, there’s something for everyone.
