Get smart: Get trained to help women negotiate salary

equityAs a women’s studies instructor, one thing that has surprised me is that young women don’t know how to negotiate salary when they are offered a job.  In fact, the idea of negotiating either doesn’t occur to them or it scares them to death.

That’s why I’m going to $tart $mart Training on Saturday afternoon at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware. The training is offered by AAUW Ohio and the Wage Project to ensure that women graduating from college start their careers knowing how to negotiate for fair and equal pay.

It will be offered from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Conrades Conrades-Wetherell Science Center on the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio. The cost is $50, payable by cash or check. Walk-ins are welcome.

  1. I attended the training with Paula. It was excellent. We will soon be running training sessions on campus. The amazing part of t he wage gap is how it just grows year after year. A $5000 difference quickly becomes a $10,000 difference. We want to help our University of Akron graduates close their own wage gap. Interested? Call Women’s Studies at 330-972-7008.
