START SMART

Salary Negotiation Workshop

 

What is the pay gap? 

The difference between what an average woman working full-time is paid compared to the average man. American women earn only 80 percent of their male counterparts, a pay gap of 20 percent. Black and Hispanic women earn even less. Even just one year out of college, women are paid 18 percent less than men.

 

Why does it matter?

The pay gap has lifelong financial effects that grow over time, from the ability to pay for education and childcare to saving for retirement, impacting women in nearly every profession.  Over the course of her working life, a woman will earn roughly $1 million less than a man.

 

Why is Smart Start the answer?

While the pay gap results from many factors — including discrimination — gender differences in salary negotiation play a role. Men are four times more likely to negotiate their starting salary, and negotiations on average result in higher pay. Learning to confidently negotiate your salary will help ensure you earn the pay and benefits you deserve.

 

How it works:

 At one of our free, two-hour salary negotiation workshops, you will learn:

  • Identify and articulate your personal value
  • Develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies

  • Conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
  • About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences on your career
