Room 111-112 (VCC West Building)The concept of negotiation brings myriad fears, most commonly, “I won’t know what to ask for.” Negotiation myths also exist, like: “women don’t negotiate as well as men” or “hiring managers only offer the lowest sum of money.” Attendees will learn the role of professional fit in assessing worth in various fields. Instead of discussing what women do wrong, the workshop will focus on what both sexes do well and can learn from each other. Rather than framing negotiation as competition, presenters will discuss expectations in relevant fields and how offers are made. In the end, participants leave with both a step-by-step approach to negotiating offers and a more nuanced understanding of the whole negotiation process.
