Speaker: Katie Donovan
Equal Pay Negotiations, LLC

Chairs: David Bradley, CFA & Stephanie Luh, CFA

A CFALA Women's Group and Career Development Sponsored event

Pay negotiation is expected by 86% of hiring managers.  It is a key element to career management, and it is one method each woman can use to minimize her personal gender pay gap.  Yet, it is an unknown skill to many.   This workshop will show you how pay negotiation is so important with some stories from candidates, hiring managers, and recruiters.   Then it is time to learn how including guided exercises.

By the end of the session you will know how to:

·     Research and determine your target salary

·     Discuss your strengths and contributions as they align to your company’s needs

·     Determine whether you need to discuss a raise, salary adjustment, or is it time to look for a new job
