You’ve just landed your first grown up job. You’re ecstatic with yourself that you managed through all the anxiety that arises from the hiring process, but guess what? It’s not over yet.

Salary negotiations are next.


Women earn about 82 cents for every dollar a man made in 2016. But what can we do to change that?


Negotiation increases wages and moves the population toward closing the gap, but women are more likely to accept the salary they are initially offered. That means we’re leaving money on the table.


On October 22nd from 6 to 8 pm, Xavier Women in Business will hosting a Salary Negotiation Program held in CLC 413. This program is a workshop for college students to learn about the process of salary negotiation in order to prepare for conversations with future employers. Their goal is to help you not leave money on the table and receive what you deserve.
