Negotiating Your Way to a Better Salary
As female professionals, we’re great at advocating for the issues that
we care about. But, we’re not always able to transfer those advocacy
skills to speaking on behalf of our personal and professional
interests in the workplace. In fact, as a result of our commitment to
serving others and contributing our energy to our causes, we might let
ourselves feel guilty for making our needs a priority.
These two workshops will empower participants to explore how their
hard work and accomplishments can serve as a source of power leading
to job satisfaction, professional fulfillment, and sustainability.
Through group facilitation and discussion, role play exercises and
reflection, participants will identify and practice strategies to
improve their communication and negotiation skills in the workplace.
Workshop One - Tuesday, May 10th, 6:30-8:30pm: "Getting it Right from
the Start" will focus on negotiating your salary and benefits package
when starting a new job.
Workshop Two - Tuesday, May 17th, 6:30-8:30pm: "Moving Up" will
explore tips, tricks and methods for leveraging your hard work into
salary increases and promotions at your current (or future) job.

discounted price. Plus, we're offering a bonus: with your purchase,
