Salary Negotiation 101 : an AAUW Work Smart Workshop
Sponsored by the Women's Fund of Rhode Island  in partnership with TOAST: The Empowered Black Women’s Collaborative.

If you’ve been wanting to level up in your career or your professional development—now is the time to do so. Come dine with the Queens of TOAST, rub elbows with other professionals, and walk away with the connections and strategies that you need to survive, thrive and ask for what you are worth.

Women who negotiate 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.
 
Why is negotiation so important? Research on the gender pay gap shows that, one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than their male counterparts. 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.
 
This course will be taught by Kelly Nevins, Executive Director of the Women’s Fund of Rhode Island, a registered AAUW Work Smart trainer.

This event is open to the public. Reservations are required and limited to 50 guests for this intimate interactive workshop.
 
The AAUW Work Smart Workshop
