$tart $mart — Salary Negotiation Workshop

In the United States, a woman still typically earns only 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. And just one year out of college, the gender wage gap is still 82 cents to the dollar. Having the knowledge and skills to negotiate their first salaries is one way college women can work to close the wage gap, one paycheck at a time.

AAUW offers $tart $mart salary negotiation workshops, which provide college women who are approaching the job market the knowledge and skills they need to negotiate salaries and benefits.
