The Work Smart workshop was created by American Association of University Women (AAUW) and is designed to help women negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. In every two-hour workshop women gain confidence in their negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play. The objectives of this workshop are to help women learn:
How to identify and articulate their personal value
How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies, including how to get a raise or promotion
How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences as women age and the pay disparity increases
Why negotiation skills?
This course was designed in response to the continuing pay gap women experience regardless of their social and educational background. AAUW’s research on the gender pay gap shows that one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men. Women who work full time take home 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. And over a lifetime, those lost potential earnings add up. Women who negotiate to increase their potential to earn higher salaries and better benefits packages. By negotiating fair and equitable salaries, you’ll be better able to pay off loans, buy the things you want and need, and even save for retirement.
