Boston, MA Women in Tech is proud to be hosting AAUW Work Smart in Boston program for our first meeting of 2020!
Work Smart in Boston is a salary negotiation workshop program is part of Martin J. Walsh’s pay equity model provided in partnership by the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement at the City of Boston and the American Association of University Women (AAUW). These free workshops teach women how to determine their market worth based on their skills, experience, performance, qualifications, and responsibilities on the job.
Here’s what you can expect to learn from the workshop:
- About the gender pay gap, including its personal consequences
- How to quantify the market value of your education, skills, and experience
- How to conduct objective market research and determine a fair target salary
- How to create a strategic pitch and respond to salary offers

Garage parking is available at One Beacon Street and in garages on many of the surrounding blocks. (Metered parking is limited downtown.)

**Important note about RSVPs:** RSVP required for this month's event. Additionally to RSVPing here, please register on the AAUW Eventbrite, to ensure easiest check in and to receive your copy of the workbook for the workshop.
*Additional note for our members who identify as Allies - we love having you at our events, but given the mission of this workshop & limited space, we'd love it if you could hold off until day of to register to make sure as many Womxn & non binary friends in Tech are able to attend as possible.
I know these are both different than our typical float in and float out happy hours - thank you in advance for your understanding.
