Equal Pay Day 2021

Today is Equal Pay Day — and while we hope this observance of the day women finally earn what men made in the previous year is no longer needed, we appreciate the City and County of Honolulu and the State of Hawaii recognizing that the gender pay gap must be addressed and closed.

 Get Your Family and Friends Work Smart — Online!

You know that women are paid less in the workplace — but did you know AAUW’s Work Smart program, which teaches women to negotiate for higher salaries, is available online?

To end the gender wage gap, AAUW is encouraging its members to share Work Smart Online with 20 of their friends and family. Or even better, gather them together and have them bring their laptops so you can take the course together! Then encourage them to share Work Smart Online with 20 of their family and friends.

AAUW wants to train 10 million women in salary negotiation by 2022. Let’s make it happen!

Click here to start your Work Smart seminar!

AAUW’s Start Smart and Work Smart programs are designed to empower women with the skills and confidence to successfully negotiate their salary and benefits packages. By learning strategies and practicing effective language, participants gain valuable skills they can use throughout their lives — well beyond their next negotiation.
