Join us for a fun evening of networking and personal development with the team from Work Smart Boston, with space graciously provided by Morgan Stanley. Following refreshments and networking, attendees will participate in a "Work Smart" salary negotiation workshop designed to empower participants with the appropriate skills and tools to craft a strategic pitch and navigate professional advancement.

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.

The AAUW Work Smart salary negotiation workshop will help you to gain the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate your salary and benefits packages.

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.

Doors open at 6pm

Networking 6pm - 6:30pm

Workshop - 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Space is limited, so sign up early. All registered attendees will be required to present identification upon arrival. Looking forward to seeing you there!
