The LHU chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is hosting a $tart $mart Workshop on April 8th in Bentley Dining Hall, Room S06-07 from 5:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m.
"$tart $mart prepares college women who are approaching the job market with the confidence, knowledge, and skills they need to negotiate salaries and benefits. This three and a half hour workshop is a collaboration between AAUW and the WAGE Project.
When students leave the $tart $mart campus workshop, they learn
how the gender wage gap affects their lives
how to develop a personal budget to determine salary needs
how to benchmark salary and benefits
how to negotiate for their first salary out of college
According to AAUW research, just one year after graduation, women earn just 82 percent of what their male counterparts earn, and the gender wage gap widens over the next 10 years.
More than 225 campuses throughout the United States have hosted $tart $mart. Before the workshop, only 25 percent of attendees said they were confident that they could negotiate a salary and benefits package. That figure skyrocketed to 91 percent upon completion of the workshop."
This event is free and dinner will be provided! Registration is limited- RSVP by emailing Dr. Canatella at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1st.
The LHU $tart $mart Workshop is sponsored by: the AAUW-Lock Haven branch, President's Commission on the Status of Women, LHU Career Services, and the HOPE Center.
