PWN Paris - Joint International Program and Professional Development - Ask For More: Negotiating Your Pay

07 December 2017 19:30 - 21:30 Minimes

Whether it’s your performance review, a job offer or your consulting rate, find out how to negotiate and ask for what you’re worth.

A study at Carnegie Mellon revealed that more than half of men but only 7% of women negotiate higher salary offers. Wow, 7%? Let’s change that. Our panel of expert practitioners will give you tips and tricks on how to negotiate your compensation whether it’s during your annual performance review or a new job offer.

Have you never negotiated? Did you not realize you could negotiate? Have you negotiated but it didn’t go the way you wanted? This event is for you.

Agenda: A short panel discussion with the three speakers, followed by a networking cocktail.
