Town Hall: Ladies Negotiate (Honolulu)

Whether you’re interviewing for a new job or want a raise in a current one, this town hall will cover how to prepare, best ways to present yourself, and what to say when you’re getting pushback during a negotiation. We’ll have a panel of ladies who will provide important talking points and give us the courage to get paid what we deserve.

At each town hall we ask our panelists to share their stories, and then we open the discussion to the room, and encourage everyone to share or ask something. Chances are, if you have a question, there is someone in the room who has an answer, or can at least guide you to it. The goal of the evening is to be a collective strategy session: we’re here to help one another be better, be stronger, and be smarter about negotiating.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to prepare for a big negotiation
  • Negotiation best practices and strategies
  • How to ask for what you want without damaging relationships
  • What to do if you don’t get what you aimed for

Town Hall: Women & Money (MPLS)

60% of today's college graduates are women but less than 22% of us make it past middle management.

Money is power. It's self-worth. It's value. It's also really uncomfortable to talk about. Come join our town hall where women will share their work war stories and together, strategize on how we can better advocate for ourselves and each other. At each town hall we ask our panelists to share their stories, and then we open the discussion to the room and encourage everyone to share or ask something.

Speakers include:

Moderated by Claire Wasserman, Founder of Ladies Get Paid!

Can we bring our children?
We know finding childcare can be hard (and expensive!) so you're welcome to bring your kids. Feminism can never start too young.

Wine & Snacks will be provided!

We welcome cis + trans women, as well as non-binary/gender non-conforming folks.

April Wilson, VP of Pacific Resource Capital Group, Inc, will inform us on:

  • Importance of Financial Planning
  • Protection & Risk Management
  • Wealth Accumulation
  • Retirement Planning

Expect a kickass presentation, time to ask plenty of burning questions, and opportunities to meet the strong women of our network.

Town Hall: Boundaries & Burnout (Chicago)

Burnout Among Women: It's a Thing

A recent study by McKinsey shows that women account for 53% of corporate entry-level jobs, but only hold 37% of mid-management roles. That number drops to 26% for vice presidents and senior managers, and given only 11% of women choose to leave the workplace permanently to have children, there's something much bigger at play.

Between our always-on culture and the high expectations placed on us by our employers, our families, and ourselves, saying no can be really hard. At this town hall, we'll talk about our experiences with burnout and strategies for establishing the boundaries and self-care practices that can help us avoid it. As with each town hall, we'll ask our panelists to share their stories, and then we'll open the discussion to the room, and encourage everyone to share or ask something.

Speakers: 
Qiana Lawery, associate director of alumni managment, Northwestern University
Ari Krzyzek, co-founder, creative director, and chief designer, Chykalophia Group
Liz Traines, founder and CEO, Liz Traines Coaching
Betsy Boesch, M.A., LCPC, emergency services supervisor, DuPage County Health Department
Cat Aldana, owner, Eat Stretch Nap

Key Takeaways:

  • How to recognize the signs of burnout
  • How to find and set boundaries
  • How to feel confident about enforcing boundaries
  • Bring friends—the more the merrier :)
  • Female-identifying, non-binary folks are welcome.
