AAUW Pay & Benefits Negotiation Workshop

An AAUW workshop promo image.

Are you earning what you deserve? In 2015, full-time working women in the U.S earned 80% of what men earn. In California, the figure is 86% – better, but still not at parity. A portion of this gap is attributed to women’s lack of knowledge in how to best negotiate for their pay and benefits.

Created for working women, AAUW Work Smart is a free interactive workshop that teaches you to evaluate, negotiate, and articulate your worth confidently in the job market. AAUW’s facilitators lead discussions on the gender pay gap and its personal effects, while small group activities and role-play exercises give you the opportunity to create and perfect your persuasive pitches. You learn objective research and benchmarking skills to establish an equitable target salary or wage, whether you are striving for a promotion, asking for a raise, or negotiating for a position with a new organization or company.

Coordinated by American Association of University Women (AAUW) Long Beach, the workshop is limited to 40 participants. Men who champion equality are welcome. Want life-enhancing skills with which to start the new year? What are you waiting for?
