Know Your WORTH (Women Offering Resources, Truth, and Heart)

  Salary Negotiation Techniques for Women Shop Talk

  Handshakes + Headshots Networking Event


In collaboration with the School of Social Work and Career Services, The Graduate College is pleased to announce a Shop Talk geared specifically towards salary negotiation techniques.

Negotiating one’s salary is an important skill that will come in handy throughout your professional career when it comes to ensuring that you are getting paid what you are worth! However, these conversations can be an unfamiliar and uncomfortable topic for professionals at any level. Negotiation is a skill, and like any skill, it takes practice. According to the American Association for University Women (AAUW), women working full time in the United States are paid 80 percent of what white, non-Hispanic men are paid – a gap of 20 percent. If we are going to lessen the salary gap, we have to take actionable steps!

This is a Start Smart Workshop by the American Association for University Women.
