You deserve a raise. This free online course will give you the tools you need to successfully negotiate and close the pay gap for women everywhere. Register today!

AAUW’s salary negotiation workshops are designed to help you negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. In every workshop you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and learn:

  • About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences
  • How to identify and articulate your personal value
  • How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
  • Strategies for making the ask including deflection, building your pitch, and responding persuasively

Why is negotiation so important? AAUW’s 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 about 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. And 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.

Is the workshop only for women? No!! While the intention is to education women on how to negotiate for equal pay, men of color face some of the same issues that women face when competing for their dream jobs. Therefore, we invite all students to take the course. The content is relevant to men of color who want to master salary negotiation skills and be equipped to compete on level terms.
