Here’s some proof that WORK SMART can work!

I lowballed my net worth for a large part of my career, only to be frustrated down the road in a job where I don’t feel like I’m being paid what I’m worth. I joined the local AAUW after I learned about AAUW’s work on pay equity and salary negotiation.”— Alyssa R., AAUW salary negotiation workshop participant (from aauw.org website)
