This January, AAUW, The Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement, SMASH Boston, and the PRX Podcast Garage are pleased to invite you to a free AAUW Work Smart salary negotiation workshop & gathering in Allston!

AAUW Work Smart in Boston, an initiative of AAUW and the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement, is a FREE grassroots salary negotiation workshop program that helps close the gender wage gap by empowering women to evaluate, articulate, and negotiate their value in the job market.

In this workshop, you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-playing and learn

  • How to identify and articulate your personal value

  • How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other strategies to use when negotiating

  • How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits

  • About the wage gap, including its long-term consequences

The event will kick off with the free workshop. Stay after the workshop for a gathering with SMASH Boston, and meet audio and media makers working to smash the patriarchy! We will be hanging out enjoying drinks and storytelling.

Check-in will begin 30 minutes before the workshop.

This event is free and open to the public.


SMASH Boston is a gathering for audio and media makers smashing the patriarchy. They are a space where womxn can share their skills, feelings, and stories, while learning how to navigate obstacles rooted in gender.
