Start Smart: Salary Negotiation Workshop

Wednesday, 5:00PM - 8:00PM, Reeve Union Room 201

Learning how to effectively negotiate salary is one way to combat the wage gap. Not sure what the 'wage gap' is? It's the oft-cited statistic that women make 77 cents to a man's dollar. But it is more complicated than that. Race, ethnicity, and gender are all factors, with Hispanic women facing the largest pay gap. Utilizing resources from the WAGE Project and the AAUW, this workshop will provide students with the knowledge they need to feel confident in salary negotiation in order to combat the wage gap.
