Run. Don't walk to this panel!
I remember listening to Michelle Obama speak when I took several LadyDrinks members tothe United State of Women Summit in Washington DC a few years ago.
Theformer U.S. First Lady closed out the day in conversation with Oprah. She talked about the time she was offered her first job after law school.She didn't even think tonegotiate for a higher salary. After the birth of her first child,she negotiated with her then-employer, the University of Chicago, to scale back to a part-time position. Sheended up working just as much as she had before, but for less pay.
She expressed that one of the biggestchallenges that we have as women is that we don't negotiate for ourselves. "We lack the confidence. We lack the guidance."
That tees up our very powerful event Tuesday, June 12th. I've assembled a kick ass panel of men & women who will leave you with real, tactical advice you can walk out of the room with on how to negotiate --hard--and better. IN fact, we will pick two ladies from the audience to conduct a mock negotiation with Alison Taffel Rabinowitz who teaches women at The Finishing School how to negotiate.
