About this event

Do you want a fair salary for you and your friends? Do you feel awkward talking about money unless it’s to talk about a deal you got at Target? Do you wish you could just pay someone to negotiate on your behalf? Do you dread the fact that you have to be an adult and advocate for yourself? If you said yes to those questions, this is the talk for you! First, we’ll talk about how you can answer those awkward questions about what your current salary is and what salary you are looking for so you don’t get that heart in the throat kind of feeling. Then, we’ll set you up to do the right research for a fair salary because who can argue with data? We will talk about tips and tricks for your upcoming negotiation, but we’ll start you on the right plan to be confident and prepared for the next negotiation. We will finish it off with some real life practice in a safe space and give each other feedback on how we can improve. Let’s start closing the wage gap today!

**All gender identities are welcome. Please note that due to the sensitive nature of this workshop, the code of conduct (don't be a jerk) will be strictly enforced -- remember, we want everyone to be making more money!**
