As many of you already know, here at Twenty Ten Talent we are passionate about closing the gender pay gap and helping women earn what they deserve.
On average, women in the United States are paid 20% less than men and for black women the gap is even more terrifying. As a result of the gender pay gap the average woman misses out on more than $400,000 during her career.
The chances are, you deserve a raise. The American Association of University Women (AAUW) wants to help.
AAUW has launched a free online course designed to give you the tools you need to successfully negotiate your salary.All you need to do is head to salary.aauw.org to register.
Next, you’ll be directed to a brief questionnaire to help determine the level of negotiation advice you’ll need.
After that, you’ll receive a downloadable workbook to accompany you as you work through the AAUW Work Smart Online course.
The course covers how to create your own value statement, how to research your target salary, tips for successful negotiation, and more.
It’s completely free and you can work through each step at your own pace.
Check it out and spread the word.
