Please join de la Femme for our next event  on Feb 5th: “How to negotiate your salary and get what you want”

Now that you’ve got a job offer, how do you negotiate to get the salary that you deserve?  Then, in the future, how do you negotiate for a promotion?  The fact is that women today are making roughly 20% less on every dollar a man earns doing the exact same job. Although there are many contributing factors, one of them is the ability to negotiate a fair salary.  Come and learn from a panel of powerhouse speakers on how to determine a fair salary range, approach a salary negotiation, and get what you want!
