August 22 is Black Women's Equal Pay Day. In an effort to help close the gender pay gap (on average Black women are paid 39% less than white men), Lean In Michigan is hosting an AAUW Work Smart Salary Negotiation Workshop on August 17.
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) Work Smart program is designed to help you negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. In the two-hour workshop you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play and learn
How to identify and articulate your 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
Why is negotiation so important? AAUW’s research on the gender pay gap shows that, one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men. And over a lifetime, those lost potential earnings add up.
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.
This event is FREE and open to all but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
