Enjoy delicious refreshments and get to know AAUW members better at this spring afternoon event. Members who have yet to find a Branch Interest Group will have a chance to meet group members and learn about activities. Potential members can meet current members and learn about AAUW history.

The annual Garden Party is a social event designed to encourage outreach to potential new members who may be interested in participating in one of our 7 Interest Groups, Work Smart, Equal Pay Day, the 15th Annual STEM Conference at LBCC, advocating for public policy issues, or the many other events and programs we do to support women and girls. It’s a chance to show off the Branch, and recruit individuals who will bring fresh ideas, collaboration and leadership skills, as well as enthusiasm as new members. Those who join at this event will be eligible for a reduced membership rate of $70.50, effective through June 2018!

AAUW Work Smart Workshop

Saturday, May 20, 2017

10:00a.m. – 12:00p.m.

Field office of Councilwoman Suzie Price

 340 Nieto Avenue

Long Beach, CA  90814


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 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.

Coordinated by American Association of University Women (AAUW) Long Beach, the AAUW Work Smart workshop on May 20th is sponsored by Councilwoman Suzie Price at her field office and is offered free to the public. Attendance is limited to 40 participants. Reservations for the workshop must be made online at salary.aauw.org/longbeach.

Come and learn how to negotiate what you deserve!
