power negotiating for women

a workshop with Kate Sweeney, Columbia University presented by FORIS

How can women effectively advocate for themselves while also establishing collaboration and connection with other parties? Women are less likely to ask, initiate, or be positively disposed towards negotiations. By viewing negotiation as problem solving, we can move it from being a winlose game to one of mutual benefit. Participants will learn ways to practice informal negotiating in everyday interactions to increase their ability and confidence, and improve their chances of getting more of what they want and deserve.
