In thistwo-hour workshop youll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play. Learn: How to identify and articulate your personal value How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other strategies to use when negotiating 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? AAUWs research on the gender pay gap shows that, one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than their male counterparts in 2009, women one year out of college who were working full time were paid, on average, just 82 percent of what their male peers were paid. And those lost potential earnings add up over a lifetime. Women who negotiate increase their potential to earn higher salaries and better benefits packages. By negotiating fair and equitable salaries, youll be better able to pay off loans, buy the things you want and need, and even save (though it may seem like its far away) for retirement.
