Developed by the American Association of University Women, the Start Smart
workshop educates about the gender gap in pay while equipping college women
and men to face the job market with the confidence, knowledge, and skills
they need to negotiate better salaries and benefits. Why sign up? According
to research, only 25 percent of students report feeling confident that they
can successfully negotiate a good salary and benefits package. This is
especially significant for women negotiating their first salary.

After attending a Start Smart workshop, a majority of participants report
feeling more confident about in their negotiating ability. Attendees will
gain valuable salary negotiation skills by learning:  how the gender wage gap
affects their lives, how to develop a personal budget to determine salary
needs, how to benchmark salary and benefits, how to negotiate for a
salary--especially their first salary out of college.
