Salary Negotiation

AAUW NC supports STEM education for girls

One year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men. The gap grows larger over time during a woman’s career. Women who work full time take home about 83 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. Unless things change, the pay gap will not close til 2106 — that’s why we’re empowering women nation-wide with salary negotiation skills — and working to change polices and employer culture.


AAUW NC Supports Mini-Grants for Girls

A primary goal for AAUW NC is our focus on supporting efforts that provide women and girls better opportunities for education and successful careers.
