Bringing AAUW Work Smart workshops to Pennsylvania


In collaboration with the Pennsylvania Commission for Women, AAUW Pennsylvania is bringing AAUW Work Smart salary negotiation workshops to the working women of Pennsylvania.  Beginning September 24 through January 13th, two workshops will be presented in Harrisburg, York, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, and one in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.  We are fortunate to have received positive publicity at several workshops.  This piece explaining the salary pay gap ran on WGAL on November 18.

The workshop is FREE.

For dates, venues, and to register, go to https://salary.aauw.org/.

For more information, see Governor Wolf’s announcement.

Are you seeking a promotion?  Want a pay raise?  Looking for a new job?  Then you will benefit from this FREE workshop.

AAUW Work Smart is a successful salary negotiation workshop for working women in job transition and seeking promotions.  One ingredient of the gender pay gap is women often don’t negotiate their salaries.  We advocate on behalf of others with gusto, yet find it difficult to do the same for ourselves.  This workshop teaches the skills to identify an individual’s unique skills, knowledge and experience; how to communicate these in an interview; how to value these in the salary discussion; and how to negotiate for a salary based on these unique attributes.

Unable to attend in person, this life-changing workshop is FREE and now ONLINEAAUW Work Smart Online can be accessed through any computer or mobile device and takes about 90 minutes to complete, giving participants the tools and skills they need to successfully negotiate their salaries.
