Salary Negotiation Workshop


The Department of Women’s Studies is sponsoring an AAUW Salary Negotiation Workshop, 
Tuesday, April 25 2017, 5:15-7:45 pm.  Developed by the American Association of University Women, the Start Smart workshop educates about the gender gap in pay while equipping college women and men to face the job market with the confidence, knowledge, and skills they need to negotiate better salaries and benefits.

Why sign up?  According to research, only 25 percent of students report feeling confident that they can successfully negotiate a good salary and benefits package.  This is especially significant for women negotiating their first salary. After attending a Start Smart workshop, a majority of participants report feeling more confident about in their negotiating ability.

Attendees will gain valuable salary negotiation skills by learning: 
· how the gender wage gap affects their lives
· how to develop a personal budget to determine salary needs
· how to benchmark salary and benefits
· how to negotiate for a salary--especially their first salary out of college


Registration is required.
Seating is limited, so sign up today!
