Empower women with the skills and confidence they need to negotiate their salaries by bringing a salary negotiation workshop to your campus, community, or city!

AAUW leads the charge to close the gender pay gap with a multipronged approach to a complex problem. Both AAUW Start Smart and AAUW Work Smart’s innovative curricula are grounded in the latest research and offer best practices for navigating the complexities of job offers and promotion opportunities.

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

  • 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 pay gap, including its long-term consequences on their careers

Designed for college students who are about to enter the job market, AAUW Start Smart teaches women the skills and resources they need to ask for and receive fair pay.
