$tart $mart prepares college women who are approaching the job market with the confidence, knowledge, and skills they need to negotiate salaries and benefits. 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.

$tart $mart campus workshop participants will 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

This workshop is a collaboration between AAUW and the WAGE Project.

Registration for the Spring 2016 is now closed!

This interactive workshop is free and open to anyone on campus with priority given to women-identified, transgender, and gender non-conforming graduate and undergraduate students preparing for the job market.
