Work Smart with Tri Delta

Tri Delta is boldly leading the way by addressing important issues such as gender equity and barriers women face in the workplace. Our Fraternity is proud to partner with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to address these complex societal issues and take an important step toward closing the pay gap.

AAUW Work Smart is designed to empower women with the skills they need to successfully negotiate their salaries and benefits. The Toronto Alumnae Chapter was selected to host one of these inspiring workshops and you’re invited to join us!

Over the course of the two-hour session, you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation style through facilitated discussion and role-play. Topics to be covered include:

  • How to identify and articulate your personal value
  • How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies, including how to get a raise or promotion
  • How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits
  • Information about the wage gap, including its long-term consequences
