Work Smart

AAUW Work Smart is designed to help you negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. In every 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

Take an online workshop now! 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. 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 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.

AAUW Work Smart has joined forces with LUNA to provide salary negotiation workshops across the country. Learn more about this collaboration.

AAUW also works with many city governments to offer AAUW Work Smart in their communities. You can learn more about these specific initiatives below.
