Library offers salary negotiations workshop for women

Course set for April 18

GREENSBORO — The Greensboro Public Library, along with the America Association of University Women (AAUW), will offer Work Smart Salary Negotiation Skills Training from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18 at Central Library, located at 219 N. Church St. in Greensboro.

Greensboro_logoWomen working full time in the United States typically are paid only 80 percent of what white men are paid, a gap of 20 percent — and it’s even worse for women of color. This workshop offers women training in successfully negotiating salary and benefits packages. Participants will learn:

* About the gender pay gap;
* How to quantify and articulate their value;
* How to conduct objective market research and determine a fair target salary;
* How to create a strategic pitch and respond to salary offers.

This workshop is an initiative of AAUW-Greensboro, with the support of the Commission on the Status of Women and the City of Greensboro, designed to empower women in salary negotiations. This event is free and open to the public. To find out more, visit www.greensborolibrary.org.
