BOS Lady Project: Salary Negotiation

  • General Assembly Boston 51 Melcher Street Boston, MA, 02210 United States (map)


Did you know that women working full-time in the United States typically are paid just 79 percent of what men are paid? This is a gap of 21 percent. The gender pay gap starts just one year out of college, and it only gets worse over the course of a career.

We are teaming up with AAUW Work Smart Boston and The BOS Lady Project to offer the women of Boston a free salary negotiation workshop so that you can learn how to negotiate and establish a fair salary early on in your careers.

Created for working women, this is an interactive workshop that teaches women to evaluate, negotiate, and articulate their worth confidently in the job market. Whether striving for a promotion, asking for a raise or negotiating a new salary, you will learn how to conduct objective research to establish an equitable target salary. Our expert facilitator, Kristina Desir, will lead a discussion on the gender wage gap and its personal effects. There will be small group activities and role-play exercises to give your the opportunity to create and perfect a persuasive pitch.
