AAUW Work Smart in Boston with SPARK Boston + the Seven Sisters Alumni Network

The American Association of University Women, SPARK Boston, the Boston Smith College Club, and the Seven Sisters Alumni Network are inviting women across Boston to come together for a free salary negotiation workshop on December 10th at MassChallenge.

Women working full time in the United States typically are paid just 80 percent of what men are paid, a gap of 20 percent — and it’s even wider for black women, Latinas, and Native women.

Attend this FREE two-hour salary negotiation workshop to learn how to confidently and successfully negotiate your salary and benefits packages. In this workshop, you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-playing and learn

  • How to identify and articulate your 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 wage gap, including its long-term consequences

You will also have an opportunity to practice your negotiation.

AAUW Work Smart in Bostonan initiative of AAUW and the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement, is a FREE grassroots salary negotiation workshop program that helps close the gender wage gap by empowering women to evaluate, articulate, and negotiate their value in the job market.

Check-in will begin 30 minutes before the workshop.
