–AAUW has developed salary negotiation programs. The Work Smart online training program is appropriate for all women, in any field.  It can be done from the comfort of your home, so please take advantage of this great tool to help narrow the pay gap.

Additionally, through our Branch meeting programs, and special interest groups, members participate in life-long learning and create lasting friendships.
