Closing the Pay Gap with AAUW
At the current rate, the gender pay gap will not close until 2106. In 2018, AAUW announced our bold pledge to train 10 million women in salary negotiation by 2022. We will not wait for policies and employer culture alone to determine when we reach parity. We are working to empower women nation-wide with skills to effectively negotiate their salary and benefits and become agents of change in their communities.
Attend our online or in person workshops, bring an AAUW salary negotiation training to your community, or share our programs and become and advocate for equal pay.

AAUW’s salary negotiation workshops are designed to help you negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion. In every workshop you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and learn:
- About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences
- How to identify and articulate your personal value
- How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
- Strategies for making the ask including deflection, building your pitch, and responding persuasively
Why is negotiation so important? AAUW’s research on the gender pay gap shows that, one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men. Women who work full time take home about 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. And over a lifetime, those lost potential earnings add up.
Women who negotiate increase their potential to earn higher salaries and better benefits packages. By negotiating fair and equitable salaries, you’ll be better able to pay off loans, buy the things you want and need, and even save for retirement.
