Training in pay negotiation prepares women for tough talks

Nov. 5, 2021


A program offered by the American Association of University Women is giving people—and particularly women—the tools to negotiate their salary for a raise, promotion or new job. Gloria L. Blackwell, who became AAUW’s CEO in October, started the group’s training in salary negotiations in 2018 while head of the programs team.

Work Smart Online is a free, self-paced online course available to anyone. It takes about two hours to complete. Washington, D.C.-based AAUW also offers Work Smart workshops—in person before the pandemic and now virtually—through individual employers, local and state governments and other organizations.
