    AAUW Work Smart: Salary Negotiation Workshop for Working Women

    Wednesday, May 17, 2017

    6:30 pm to 8:30 pm


    Hosted By


    3625 24th Street, SF, CA 94110


     


    Created for working women, AAUW (American Association of University Women) Work Smart is designed to help women negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion.

    In every two-hour workshop, participants gain confidence in their negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play and learn

    • How to identify and articulate their personal value
    • How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other strategies to use when negotiating
    • 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 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.

    CEDAW stands for the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, an international bill of rights for women.  In 1998, San Francisco became the first city in the nation to adopt a local CEDAW Ordinance.

    The CEDAW Women’s Human Rights Awards distinguish leaders and organizations who use their public roles to advance the rights of women.  Awards are given for leadership demonstrated in diverse sectors of the community, including education, entrepreneurship, government, health, labor, media and philanthropy.
