LD1680B - AAUW Work Smart | Negotiating for Fair Pay

The gender pay gap is not just a woman’s issue. It affects families, businesses and our entire economy.

Since 1881, AAUW has been a catalyst for positive change, from boosting young women’s access to education to shaping public policy and producing groundbreaking research on gender equity. In recent years, AAUW has made economic security for women and families a core focus. As a part of this work, AAUW is working to empower women across the country with skills to negotiate for fair and equitable pay through our Work Smart programs.

AAUW Work Smart is a salary negotiation program designed to give women the skills and confidence to advocate for themselves in the workplace. Participants learn how to research competitive salaries, articulate their skills, qualifications, and experience, and ask for—and get—the pay they deserve.
