Are you earning what you deserve? Based on the latest data (2016), full-time working women in the U.S earned 80% of what men earned…A portion of this gap is attributed to women’s lack of knowledge in how to best negotiate for their pay and benefits. Created for working women, Work Smart is a free interactive workshop that teaches you to evaluate, negotiate, and articulate your worth confidently in the job market. During this workshop we will hold discussions on the gender pay gap and its personal effects, do some small group activities and role-play exercises to give you the opportunity to create and perfect your persuasive pitches. You will learn objective research and benchmarking skills to establish an equitable target pay range, whether you are striving for a promotion, asking for a raise, or negotiating for a position with a new organization or company.
