$tart $mart

 Start Smart Fall 2014

$tart $mart is a collaborative project between the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and The WAGE Project. The program teaches college women how to negotiate for their first salaries upon graduation. The curriculum teaches about the wage gap, skills in researching salary ranges, and negotiation skills. The University of Houston WGRC and the Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies (WGSS) program are pleased to present this workshop at the conclusion of every semester for UH women preparing to graduate.  

The next $tart $mart will be co-presented with the WGSS program on Friday, December 11th. We'll be in Agnes Arnold Hall, room 210 from 9am-12pm. Contact to RSVP or more information.
