Salary Negotiation Workshop for Women
Do you want to learn what it takes to negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion? In this nationally recognized workshop facilitated by Karen Kirkwood and sponsored in conjunction with the American Association of University Women(AAUW), you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play to learn:
- How to identify and articulate your personal value
- How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies
- 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 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. 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.
