Each meeting features a speaker who covers topics of interest to those who are involved in or contemplating a job search or career change. The meeting begins with a networking session at 9:45 AM. We ask everyone to be seated by 9:55 AM so that the speaker can start promptly at 10:00 AM.

Many of us continue our networking conversations over lunch at one of the nearby restaurants. Plan to join us.

    Women -- and Men: Know Your Worth!

     -- with Rebecca Ahmed

    Understand how women and men think differently about their value and worth. Learn how to leverage each other's strengths and put these strengths into action.

    Are you working your tail off but still haven’t been given the promotion you deserve? Are you preparing for your 2019 performance review and hoping for a raise? Do you know you are worth more, but don’t know how to ask for a raise?

    This workshop will dive into how women and men think differently about their value and worth. You will learn how to leverage each other’s strengths and put these strengths into action. We will go over three steps to building your pitch to get that promotion or raise you desire!

    By the end of this workshop you will walk away with:

    • Values Assessment: Tools to ensure you know your values and your motivators
    • Value Proposition Pitch Deck
    • Negotiation skills leveraging strengths from both women and men
