Salary Negotiation Workshop for Women
September 15, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pmFree
The FRIENDS of the Commission on the Status of Women launched the Equal Pay Initiative to address the gender wage gap by offering AAUW Work Smart, a FREE 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 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.
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.
