Women working full time in the United States typically are paid just 80 percent of what white men are paid, a gap of 20 percent — and it’s even worse for women of color. Attend this FREE two-hour salary negotiation workshop to gain the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate your salary and benefits packages. Participants will learn:

  • About the gender pay gap, including its personal consequences;
  • How to quantify and articulate your value;
  • How to conduct objective market research and determine a fair target salary; and
  • How to create a strategic pitch and respond to salary offers.

You will also have an opportunity to practice your negotiation. AAUW Work Smart salary negotiation workshops are free, and check-in will begin 30 minutes before the workshop. Register here.

Considering Gap Year Options?

Many organizations offer 'gap year' jobs, which are short-term positions (1-2 years) following graduation. You're already familiar with some of these employers -- the Peace Corps, Teach For America and others -- but did you know that opportunities are available for a wide range of career interests? Check out our Fellowships and Gap Year page for tools that will help you research options in fields like entrepreneurship, education, health care, public policy, STEM and more.
