Learn to negotiate your salary NOW! LEARN MORE HERE! 

Why does it matter?

The pay gap has lifelong financial effects that grow over time, from the ability to pay for education and childcare to saving for retirement, impacting women in nearly every profession. The Work Smart program teaches women at all stages of their career how to negotiate their pay, resulting in improved financial futures for themselves and their families.

GREAT NEWS: Did you read the latest Mission & Action?  AAUW, in partnership with Coca-Cola, exceeded the goal of training 100,000 women to ask for the salary they deserve through Work Smart  online or in-person workshops!  During the process, 500 professional organizations, and state and local commissions were engaged. Now the program is being expanded through women.nyc, Starbucks Global, the city of Wichita and many others.Thank you to all AAUW members who participated!

Continue sharing with everyone you know!
