(all are welcome to attend this session)

According to a Pew Research Center survey, most US workers did not ask for higher pay when starting a new job. Among those who did ask for higher pay, men were slightly more likely (32%) to negotiate pay then women (28%). As the gender wage gap stands in the US, in 2022, women typically earned 82 cents for every dollar earned by men. Leaving this money on the table can exponentially affect your career over time.

In this workshop, we will highlight tips and strategies in salary negotiation, as well as provide a chance to practice and exercise this skill. Join us to learn more about how to negotiate, when to do it, what to say and not to say, and what benefits are on the table to negotiate with.

Lunch will be provided, RSVP required. Please RSVP through this form at tinyurl.com/wmwhm2024 by March 19.
