AAUW Work Smart in WICHITA

Junior League of Wichita Work Smart is a grassroots salary  negotiation workshop board Initiative provided in partnership with W,  Wichita Community Foundation, Wichita Regional Chamber of  Commerce, WSU Tech and the American Association of University  Women (AAUW). These FREE workshops teach women how to  determine their market worth based on their skills, experience,  performance, qualifications, and responsibilities on the job.

In 2017, median annual earnings for men in Kansas were $49,267 compared to $37,931 for women — an earnings ratio of just 77  percent, or 42nd out of all states and the District of Columbia,  according to the most recent census data. The gap is worse for  most women of color and working mothers. With Congressional  gridlock at the federal level, states are working to enact their own  legislation.
