The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is working to close the gender pay gap by 2030!
AAUW Work Smart is designed for women who are already in the workforce at any career level and helps you negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. The Work Smart program has already trained more than 30,000 women, and nearly all participants report increased knowledge, skills, and confidence in negotiating. A study of the AAUW Work Smart in Boston program’s first year found nearly half of workshop participants successfully negotiated a competitive starting salary or pay raise following their training.
Jan Bensen, member of AAUW and FEW, will present this workshop at the Crooked Pint's banquet room. Attendees need to bring a laptop or tablet/iPad to the workshop as this is a hands-on training. FEW members are encouraged to bring a friend or their daughters as well. Limited to 40 participants, first come-first served. This workshop is free, attendees are encouraged to order dinner/drinks on an individual basis.
Women come away from the workshops knowing how to determine their market worth based on their skills, experience, performance, qualifications, and responsibilities on the job and having the tools and business strategies they need to successfully negotiate for fair pay for the rest of their careers.
