Start Smart Salary Negotiation for Women

6:00pm – 8:30pm

Storrs Campus
Women's Center, Student Union, 421

Start Smart is specifically designed to empower women college students about to enter the job market with the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate their salary and benefits packages. By learning strategies and practicing effective language, participants gain valuable skills they can use throughout their lives — well beyond their next negotiation. Students can expect to learn:

• about the gender pay gap, including its personal consequences • how to quantify the market value of their education, skills, and experience • how to conduct objective market research and determine a fair target salary • how to create a strategic pitch and respond to salary offers

There is a limited amount of spaces available on a first come, first served basis. Students interested in participating can register at
