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 Start Smart

 

AAUW Start Smart is designed to help you create a budget to live by and negotiate for a new job. In this two-hour workshop, you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play and learn:

·       About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences

·       How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits

·       Creating a realistic monthly budget

·       How to identify and articulate your personal value

·       How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies

 

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.

 

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 course will be taught by Kelly Nevins, Executive Director of the Women’s Fund of Rhode Island, a registered AAUW Work Smart trainer.
