Diversity and Inclusion Workshop
Wednesday June 30, 2021 at 10:30 am – 3:30 pm
Speaker: Ms. Sara Laschever
Description: Whether they want higher salaries, better career opportunities, or more help at home, women are much less likely than men to ask for what they want. Women pay for this decision in every aspect of their lives—in lost income, delayed career advancement, and under-utilization of their skills. Women who aspire to leadership roles must master the art of wielding influence without resorting to traditional command-and-control leadership styles, which typically backfire when employed by women. They need to know how to request opportunities and resources—on their own behalf and on behalf of their teams—without seeming too demanding or self-promoting.
This workshop approaches these leadership challenges from the premise that success for women begins with negotiation savvy. Workshop participants will develop the skills to ask for the resources and support they need to advance professionally, build the collaborations so necessary for success, and achieve leadership roles across their organizations.
Using a combination of lectures, interactive exercises, videos, and group discussion, this workshop explores the internal and external barriers that can prevent women from negotiating effectively, introduces “best practice” negotiation strategy, and describes ways for women to maximize their bargaining power, set the right targets for a negotiation, and manage the anxiety they often feel around this essential workplace skill.
An authority on women’s leadership and the persistence of the wage gap, Sara Laschever has spent her career investigating the challenges that shape women’s lives at work. She is the co-author, with Linda Babcock, of Women Don’t Ask, the groundbreaking study that focused public attention on the forces preventing women from negotiating on their own behalf, and Ask for It, a nuts-and-bolts negotiation training primer for women struggling to overcome the barriers in their path.
A highly sought-after speaker, Sara lectures and teaches workshops to corporate audiences, colleges and universities, law firms, government agencies, and women’s leadership conferences in the U.S. and around the world. A founding faculty member of the Carnegie Mellon Leadership and Negotiation Academy for Women and formerly a Senior Fellow at the Center for Work-Life Policy, Sara also worked as Research Associate and Principal Interviewer for Project Access, a trailblazing Harvard University study of the obstacles blocking women’s progress in the sciences.
