In Linda Babcock and Susan Laschever’s book, “Women Don’t Ask” their research indicated that the majority of women don’t negotiate and in fact, don’t even ask for what they need. This session will deconstruct the negotiation process and offer ways to consider not just salary but other aspects of a job offer that should be negotiated.

Applicants will be notified of decisions by October 18, 2013.  Registration information will be sent out with acceptance notifications. Registration includes the following meals: three breakfasts and two lunches. Dinners are on indivual cost. 

Registration as a member is based on individual membership status. If you are employed by a college or university that is an institutional member, you can join as an individual member at the $75 rate. If your institution is NOT a member, then you will need to join at the associate affiliate rate of $242 and then you can pay the individual member rate for conference registration.
