Salary Negotiation

Negotiating compensation is challenging for women (and men) at all stages of their careers. Women working full time in the United States typically are paid just 80 percent of what white men are paid, a gap of 20 percent — and it’s even worse for women of color. Start Smart workshops are specifically designed for college students about to enter the job market. According to AAUW’s research, women one year out of college are paid only 82 percent of what their male counterparts receive. By using the skills taught in this workshop, you are prepared to:

  • Negotiate your starting salary and narrow the gap early,
  • Improve your lifelong earning potential,
  • Articulate your value,
  • Build confidence in your negotiation style,
  • Sharpen your budgeting skills.
