Are you earning what you deserve?  In 2015, full-time working women in the U.S earned 80% of what men earn.  In California, the figure is 86% – better, but still not at parity. A portion of this gap is attributed to women’s lack of knowledge in how to best negotiate for their salaries and benefits.

Created for working women, AAUW Work Smart is an interactive 2-hour workshop that teaches you to evaluate, negotiate, and articulate your worth confidently in the job market. For more specific details, please see AAUW Work Smart under Projects on this website.


Upcoming workshops:

June 8, Bixby Park Community Center, sponsored by LB City Councilwoman Jeannine Pearce

July 11, Long Beach LGBTQ Center, sponsored by LUNA

August 9, Tibor Rubin VA Medical Center, sponsored by LUNA [for women veterans only]


Coordinated by American Association of University Women (AAUW) Long Beach, the AAUW Work Smart workshops are offered free to the public.  Reservations for the workshop must be made online at salary.aauw.org/longbeach.

Attendance is limited to 40 participants.

Come and learn how to negotiate what you deserve!
