Work Smart – CANCELED!!!

Saturday, March 21st

2:00-4:30pm

Elmhurst Public Library – Computer Lab

Many women do not feel comfortable negotiating a salary and benefits for their job. The AAUW Work Smart course is designed to help participants negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. Why is negotiation so important? AAUW’s research on the gender pay gap shows that one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men. Women who work full time take home 80 cents for every dollar a full time male worker is paid. This 2.5 hour workshop is designed to empower women with the skills and confidence to negotiate for fair pay. Participants learn how to research competitive salaries, articulate their skills, qualifications and experience and ask for – and get – the pay they deserve.

Presenter: Jennifer Jordan

Registration at the Elmhurst Public Library is required and is now open.

You may register by phone at (630) 279-8696 or online at elmlib.org/registration
