SCW Salary Negotiation Workshop

November 8, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


The American Association of University Women (AAUW) and the Somerville Commission for Women are pleased to invite you to Work Smart in Boston.

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.

Attend this FREE two-hour salary negotiation workshop to gain the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate your salary and benefits packages. RVSP Here.

You will learn:

•About the gender pay gap, including its personal consequences;
•How to quantify and articulate your value;
•How to conduct objective market research and determine a fair target salary; and
•How to create a strategic pitch and respond to salary offers.

You will also have an opportunity to practice your negotiation.

AAUW Work Smart in Boston is an initiative of AAUW and the Mayor’s Office of Women’s Advancement to train half the working women of Boston to negotiate their salary and benefits packages over five years.
The AAUW Work Smart salary negotiation workshops are free.

Check-in will begin 30 minutes before the workshop.

Individuals with disabilities who need auxiliary aids and services for effective communication, written materials in alternative formats, or reasonable modifications in policies and procedures, in order to access the programs and activities of the City of Somerville or to attend meetings, should contact the City’s ADA Coordinator, Nency Salamoun at 617-625-6600 x2323 or Nsalamoun@somervillema.gov.

Hosted by Somerville Commission for Women:

The Somerville Commission for Women was created in March 1988 by City ordinance. The SCW’s bylaws state that the Commission’s purpose is “to act as a centralizing force in the City of Somerville to ensure the equal status of women in educational, economic, political, health, legal, and social spheres including the provision of information, referrals and guidance… [and] to take any action considered appropriate by the SCW to ensure the equal status of women of every race, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, national origin, ability, age and sexual orientation.” Learn more here: https://bit.ly/2vcXJIO
