$tart$mart Workshop Held at MSU Feb. 1, 2014
When Montana State University decided to sponsor the first $tart$mart salary negotiation workshop to be held in the state, AAUW-MT and AAUW-Bozeman agreed to co-sponsor the event. Annie Houle (center in photo) flew in from North Carolina to facilitate both a Work$mart workshop in Helena January 31, 2014, and MSU’s $tart $mart workshop on Saturday, February 1. Despite snowy weather, the workshop was attended by almost 40 young women.
A $tart$mart workshop is a two-to-three hour workshop specially, but not exclusively, designed for junior and senior college women. The workshop teaches a young woman how to determine what employers are paying for the job she wants when she graduates and how to negotiate to be paid what she is worth doing that job. Typically, workshops include forty or fewer participants so that every student has a chance to ask questions and make comments.
In March 2009, WAGE and AAUW joined forces to address the gender wage gap by training AAUW members and staff on campuses to become facilitators of these workshops. After MSU’s workshop, several women from MSU and AAUW-MT received training as $tart$mart facilitators, so we’ll be ready to hold more workshops in Montana.
