On Thursday, March 8th from 4-6pm there will be a workshop held by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) in 200 Osburn Hall. AAUW Start Smart is designed to teach you how to negotiate salaries for a new job. Through facilitated discussion and role-play, you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style by learning different strategies and persuasive responses to fight for that raise.
The gender pay gap, regardless its size, hurts women of all backgrounds and has far-reaching consequences. Working full time, women in the United States are typically paid 80 percent of what men are paid. And that percentage only decreases as ethnicity is added to the equation. AAUW is trying to fight that – and is succeeding. In 2017, 17,000 women were trained by these workshops to negotiate their salary. These workshops employ the latest research and negotiation strategies to help women navigate promotion opportunities and job offers.
AAUW Smart Start is designed for college women who are approaching the job market and is focused on helping you negotiate for a new job. Consider coming out to this workshop to gain important, life-long skills! All Millersville students and alumni are welcome. Tickets can be found here.
