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.

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.
