AAUW presents a free online salary negotiation course (approximately one hour) to acquire fair and equal pay. Now that you have some extra time at home, this would be a great opportunity to actually take one or both of the courses! Recognize your own self-worth and get the tools you need to successfully negotiate and close the pay gap! This is a great resource for you to share with friends and family members, including granddaughters (and grandsons!). While it’s true that you might not need the information for yourself, becoming familiar with how it works and the content will help you share it with others. 176,000 people have already taken the workshop! Unless things change, the pay gap will not close until 2106 (that’s 85 years).
