Salary Negotiation Training

Whether you’re accepting a new job offer or asking for a promotion, knowing how to negotiate can help you earn more and take control of your life: You’ll be better able to pay off student loan debt, buy your first home and maybe start a family. By taking our free Work Smart workshop — online or in person — you’ll also learn how add to help close the gender pay gap, which drastically reduces women’s earning potential and erodes their lifetime financial security.

Life-Changing Results

I was able to negotiate a total of $20,000 through the tactics and the strategies from this workshop. I never would have known you can ask an employer to look at your work product in a few months and see if there’s a raise possible. I truly owe a lot of thanks to Work Smart.

Take Action

There are lots of ways to get involved with AAUW’s work to advance gender equity. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of women and girls.
