$tart $mart Workshop

Click to view larger version of flyer.

Negotiating salaries is a challenge for women at all stages of their careers, since women are significantly less likely than men to ask for what they want and deserve. This week, there will be an interactive workshop that will help female students prepare themselves for the job market. The $tart $mart workshop will take place on Wednesday, September 25th, in Dougherty West Lounge. It is for students who want to increase their negotiating skills and learn more about the challenges facing women in the workforce. Food, drink, and lots of information will be provided!

There is still time to register. You can contact Joyce Harden (joyce.harden@villanova.edu) for more information, or register yourself at http://tinyurl.com/vustartsmart.

The program is sponsored by the Gender and Women's Studies program, along with Student Development, the Society of Women Engineers, Women’s Professional Network, the College of Engineering, and the College of Nursing. The $tart $mart workshop is a campus initiative and collaboration between AAUW and the WAGE Project.
