Women leaders oftentimes are undervalued, and it is partially because women do not negotiate. The art of negotiating is more than just asking for what you are worth. It also includes asking for equal consideration.

Why Don't Women Negotiate?

Carol Sankar discusses the anxiety that women face when dealing with difficult conversations at work or in business. As a result, we assume our way through our careers, by assuming that we will face imminent rejection by asking. It’s time to break free of limited thinking and assumptions when the real problem is a lack of confidence and clarity in communicating.

This session will help you to better understand how to communicate effectively, gain the confidence to ask, and how to package your most valuable skills.
