Negotiating Your Next Promotion
Kim Radison, SHRM-SCP, founder, KKR Consult LLC
Do you find it difficult to advocate for yourself during your annual review and salary negotiation? Is it hard for you to acknowledge your achievements, much less use them as a bargaining tool for your next promotion? Sixty percent of women say they have never negotiated their salary. If you don’t ask for it, chances are, you won’t get it. This means women are easily missing out on over $1 million of pay in their careers. Why work hard and not be fairly compensated? This session will give you the tools to be successful in negotiating what you want out of your next role and earning what you deserve.
Privilege Power Control
Margaret Finley, diversity, equity & inclusion strategist, The Ohio Society of CPAs
Issues of gender and privilege have been a common theme in society for many years. The women’s liberation movement in the 1960’s and 1970’s brought into focus some of the privileges that men enjoyed based on gender and how their use of power affected the lives of women. We will look closely at the social status of women and men and see that men continue to have privilege over women in many aspects of life as it pertains to power and control. We will also take a look at the progress we’ve made in this new century and how we can support each other on our continued journey to gender equity.
