Do you want to get paid what you deserve? Want to learn how to maximize your income when looking for that next job? Learn how to get you want with the tools to make you successful. Attend AAUW Work Smart, a FREE, salary negotiation skills workshop co-hosted by the Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women, the Treasurer’s Office of Economic Empowerment, and Holyoke Community College. This program provides women with the tools they need to overcome the negative impacts of wage inequality. AAUW’s Work Smart program is designed to empower women with skills to advocate for themselves in the workplace, close their personal pay gaps, and earn their market-value through salary negotiation.


MA Treasurer Deb Goldberg launched the initiative last year as a direct response to the wage gap in Massachusetts, where women make only 82 cents for every dollar a man makes. The Women’s Fund is offering this training opportunity at no charge as part of our Impact Training initiative, but space is limited and advance registration is required.
