Time, money, and effort are just a few of the commodities that you negotiate every day. You’ll never get what you don’t ask for, and this goes a step further for women - you have to know how to ask.
Learn concrete strategies that you can apply immediately to secure the resources you deserve and simultaneously strengthen relationships in both your personal and professional life. Over dinner plan to engage in a fascinating discussion with your design colleagues as you discover:

  • Just how negotiable the world is—it’s time to stop accepting the status quo!
  • How to capitalize on your single greatest source of power. 
  • How to discern others’ interests and communicate more persuasively so that you can get what you want for their reasons. 
  • Psychological secrets that create natural rapport, project confidence, and invite cooperation.
  • “Gender triggers” and cultural stereotypes that challenge female negotiators; replace them with effective strategies that level the playing field between men and women and expand your ability to influence others.

This workshop is not just for women - it is also for employers, coworkers, and peers who want to learn how to effectively support women in the modern workplace.

Have you ever experienced microaggression or gender bias in your day to day professional life?

If so we would love to use your anonymous experiences as examples in the workshop. Maybe it was a comment on a job site that made you feel slightly uncomfortable, or maybe you found out that a colleague makes more than you for the same position. Big or small, dramatic or inconsequential, all of these experiences matter and will help to open the dialog. We want this to be as beneficial, informative, and personal as possible for everyone involved in the workshop.
