Ferris Women’s Network To Host AAUW Smart Start Salary Negotiation Workshop Sessions April 2 

Logo for Smart Start workshopStudents, members of Ferris’ faculty and staff, and community members are invited to participate in a two-hour salary negotiation workshop on Tuesday, April 2, which will be hosted by the Ferris Women’s Network.

The Smart Start session, developed by the American Association of University Women includes facilitated discussion and role play designed to help participants identify and speak to their personal value, structure their responses and strategies for effective negotiation and to conduct objective research on the market, so their compensation for salary and benefits is reasoned and credible.

There are two sessions available:

Session 1 (for faculty/staff and community): 11:00am – 1:00pm in the Founder’s Room 203;

Session 2 (for students and new job seekers): 5:00pm – 7:00pm Room 217

Meals will be provided at both sessions. Registration is required and seating is limited. Please register by clicking here or going to OrgSync.com/18438/forms/357727.

Students are especially encouraged to participate, so that gender pay gap implications are reduced or eliminated as they begin their careers.

The Ferris Women’s Network thanks Vice President of Student Affairs Jeanine Ward-Roof for funding these workshop sessions.
