AAUW is training 10 million women to negotiate their financial futures by 2022.
A new survey finds that women are less likely to ask for a raise, compared to men. There are a bunch of reasons why. But how do we change this trend? I’ll give you a hint: Practice makes perfect!
AAUW St. Paul is offering both in-person and online salary Negotiation Workshops.
Do you want to learn what it takes to negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion? In this nationally recognized workshop, you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style by learning:
- How to identify and articulate your personal value
- How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies
- How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
- About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences
Why is negotiation so important? AAUW research on the gender pay gap shows that, one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men. Women who work full time take home 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. Over a lifetime, those lost potential earnings add up. Women who negotiate increase their potential to earn higher salaries and better benefits packages. By negotiating fair and equitable salaries, you’ll be better able to pay off loans, buy the things you want and need, and even save for retirement.
The in-person workshop are being jointly sponsored by the St. Paul and the J J Hill Center. It has a limit of 40 attendees.
The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, March 7 at the J J Hill Center from 8-10 am. Breakfast treats will be served starting at 7:30 am. The J J Hill Center is located at 80 West 4th Street, Saint Paul, MN 55102. Parking nearby includes the Science Museum ramp at 120 West Kellogg Blvd.

Too busy to attend the in-person workshop, we offer a free one-hour online version. You can navigate directly to the topics that interest you — whether that’s pay gap facts or negotiating tips — rather than being required to move through the course sequentially. Customize the learning experience to meet your needs! Here’s a link to the online version information: Salary.aauw.org
