What’s New in 2018: Hands-on Workshops
Each year, the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) strives to teach our attendees leadership skills through our extensive workshop curricula. This year, we are proud to offer an expanded range of hands-on workshops. These longer sessions provide our attendees a space to learn tangible skills and empower themselves through creative, interactive, and altogether unique ways. Our 2017 selections are returning to the conference along with several exciting new opportunities!
Read on to learn more about our hands-on workshop sessions for 2018.
Zine Making for the Queens of the Neighborhood: Creating Your Own Media to Promote Social Change
Back by popular demand, Melissa Gruver from Purdue University will be leading you on a zine-making journey. Zines are self-published, low-cost, small-circulation publications. Self-publishing is a radical way for people to create their own cultures, make their voices heard, and promote change. Learn how womxn throughout history have used zines as an entry point to activism, a way to create a space for resistance, and a tool for social justice. During this hands-on activity we will work together to create a collective zine. Why let the media tell your story when you can do it yourself?
AAUW Start Smart: Get Ready to Ask for What You’re Worth
One year after college graduation, women working full time on average are paid just 82 percent of what their male peers are paid. Help fight the gender pay gap and get paid what you’re worth by learning how to negotiate your salary and benefits. The AAUW Start Smart salary negotiation workshop will teach you everything you need to know to approach the job market with the confidence, knowledge, and skills to negotiate a fair salary and benefits package.
AAUW Work Smart: Don’t Leave Money on the Table (for campus professionals only)
At the current rate of progress, the gender pay gap won’t close until 2119! Women working full time in the United States typically are paid just 80 percent of what men are paid. But by learning to recognize your value and ask for the salary you’re worth, you can start closing that pay gap right now. This AAUW Work Smart salary negotiation workshop, designed for working professionals, will prepare you to successfully negotiate your salary and benefits packages for new jobs as well as raises and promotions.
But that’s not all! We’ll have even more hands-on sessions to offer at our 2018 conference. Check back soon for updates.
