Getting thanked for doing a 'good job' is nice, but thank you in a paycheck is much better! So why is that most women have such a hard time asking for a raise, or negotiating a higher salary with a new job offer? It’s crazy making, particularly when so much research shows that women are far more effective negotiators than men, with a much higher success rate of brokering agreements, finalizing the offer, and closing the deal.
And yet…..when it comes to negotiating for ourselves….not so much! Why? Mindset, societal expectations, unconscious gender bias, and our very real fear of not being ‘Liked’ all play a role. Oh and let’s not forget to mention that little voice that says “If I just keep my head down and do a good job I'll be recognized and rewarded!” ....not!!!
Yes there are lots of external and internal reasons why it’s hard for women to ask for what we deserve, but there are also proven strategies, techniques and tactics to use when negotiating. And we’ll cover many of them in this class….you also receive customizable scripts you can follow to make your “ask” a lot smoother and more comfortable.

About the Instructor

I believe that all women, of every color, should have equal access to equal opportunity, advancement and compensation in the workplace, and in the world. My mission is to support, encourage, and empower more women to ascend up the ranks of leadership, across every industry, all the way to the C suite.

What will be included in my Virtual Class package?
One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.
How many people is my purchase good for?
Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!
Will I need anything from home to use in the class?
You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.
Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?
Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.
Do I have to show my video or speak during class?
While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!
