Host a Workshop – AAUW Salary Negotiation Programs

About AAUW’s Salary Negotiation Workshops:

While we wait for policies and employer culture to change, we are working to empower women nation-wide with skills to effectively negotiate their salary and benefits and become agents of change in their communities.

AAUW offers two salary negotiation training programs

AAUW Smart Start

Designed for college students who are about to enter the job market.

Designed to prepare working women to negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion.

Our innovative curricula are grounded in the latest research and offer best practices for navigating the complexities of job offers and promotion opportunities.

Both workshops cover 4 key learning objectives:

  • An introduction to the gender pay gap
  • Knowing and articulating your value
  • Benchmarking target salary through objective market research
  • Strategies for making the ask including deflection, building your pitch, and responding persuasively

Interested in learning more? There are a number of ways to get engaged.
