Start SmartCOLUMBUS, Miss. -- Two student workshops Friday (April 25 and May 2) at Mississippi University for Women will provide practical skills in benchmarking potential jobs and negotiating salaries.

 

Both are sponsored by The W’s branch of the American Association of University Women, in cooperation with The Wage Project.

The first 1-4 p.m. workshop will be in Parkinson 104. The second workshop will be held May 2 in the Education and Human Sciences Building, Room 120, 1-4 p.m.

"All students are invited to attend our $tart $mart workshops, especially graduating seniors (May, August, or December),” said Dr. Erin Kempker, one of the organizers.  “These are hands-on, nuts and bolts workshops that teach students how to figure out what they are worth doing a particular job, and then learn how to get paid their worth."

The sessions also are designed to address the persistent gender wage gap that can lead to a loss of over $1 million in earnings over a working woman's lifetime, she said.  “In part, this difference persists because of workplace discrimination against women, but also partly due to the fact that young women are less likely than young men to negotiate salary when entering the paid workforce than are men.”
