Salary Negotiation Workshops!

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 workshops are being jointly sponsored by the St. Paul and Metro West branches of AAUW. Each has a limit of 40 attendees.

The first workshop is scheduled for April 6, 2019 at St. Louis Park Middle School from 9:00-11:00 am. You may register and pay the $20 fee online through the following link.

The second workshop is scheduled for April 13, 2019 at Central High School in St. Paul from 2:30-4:30 pm. To register for this session, send your $20 check made out to AAUW St. Paul to Alta Oben, AAUW St. Paul, 990 Summit Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55105. Please include your email address so we can send you a confirmation and directions for accessing the high school. Registration for this workshop must be received by April 5, 2019.

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.
