Work $mart – A Salary Negotiation Workshop

Work $mart – A Salary Negotiation Workshop

October 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Workshop led by Evelyn Murphy, Appointed by Mayor Walsh to the Boston Women’s Workforce Council in July 2014, and author of Getting Even: Why Women Don’t Get Paid Like Men and What To Do About It, published by Simon & Schuster in October 2005. In 1986, Evelyn Murphy was elected Lt. Governor and became the first woman in the state’s 200 year history to hold constitutional office. Prior to that, despite the state’s progressive image, no woman had ever been elected Governor, Lt. Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Auditor, or US Senator in Massachusetts. Work $mart—A Salary Negotiation Workshop for Every Working Woman It is commonly accepted that women earn less than men even today when women are half the labor force, are as well-educated and qualified as men, and need paychecks just as much as men. Economists, labor market analysts, public policy specialists, women’s rights advocates debate the reasons for these inequities. Yet regardless of the causes, one point remains undisputed: each woman must achieve pay equity on her own. No employer, no law is going to do it for her. She must do it for herself. So, whether you are a woman who is employed, unemployed, underemployed, looking for a new job with the same employer, or a job with a new employer, Work $mart, a salary negotiation workshop especially designed for women, gives you the tools, techniques and confidence to get paid what you are worth. Work $mart is a highly interactive, nuts-and-bolts, 2 ½ hour workshop. Participants learn how to determine their worth for the job they have or want, the strategy for negotiating their salary and effective language to use in negotiation. Every participant leaves with a workbook to be used as a guide in salary negotiations for the rest of her work life. RSVP in the affirmative to womenscenter@uwosh.edu. Light refreshments will be served. Workshop is free and open to the Oshkosh community and UW Oshkosh. Co-sponsored by the Women’s Center, Office of Alumni Relations, Office of Human Resources. This project was supported by the Faculty Development Program at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh.
