StartSmart_logoCR_round2

AAUW’s Start Smart and Work Smart programs are designed to empower women with the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate their salary and benefits packages. By learning strategies and practicing effective language, participants gain valuable skills they can use throughout their lives — well beyond their next negotiation.
