How Gender Impacts Negotiations & What We Should All Do About It (1-hour webinar)
Women face unique obstacles at the negotiating table. Both male and female counterparts hold expectations that make it difficult for women to negotiate value and build relationships. This data-driven webinar shares recent research on how women can be effective despite the distinctive challenges we face at the negotiating table.
Learn how to:
- Recognize and anticipate the biases that work against women in negotiations;
- Negotiate effectively despite those biases; and
- Change workplace systems that have a disproportionate impact on female negotiators.
Presenter: Emily Epstein
Suggested Audience: Women who want to negotiate more effectively, men who want to support their female colleagues and managers of either gender who want to provide a level playing field for everyone
Bias Interrupters – Strategies for Male Allies (1-hour webinar)
The webinar provides strategies any manager or advocate for women can use to disrupt workplace bias, so it’s directly relevant to men and women alike. Women who manage others or who are interested in advocating for greater gender equity are especially encouraged to attend.
This webinar is for male allies – leaders, managers and individual contributors who want to interrupt implicit bias and help create a level playing field for women and diverse professionals. Learn about an innovative new approach – Bias Interrupters – that starts from the extensive social science on implicit bias and provides simple, low-risk ways to interrupt the kinds of bias that commonly affect everyday workplace interactions. The webinar will also introduce a new model of organizational change, “Metrics-Driven Bias Interrupters.”
This webinar offers strategies to help male allies:
- Recognize implicit bias when it occurs;
- Pinpoint where bias often plays out in everyday situations;
- Identify low-key ways individuals can interrupt bias without spending too much political capital; and
- Identify tweaks to existing organizational systems (e.g., hiring, performance evaluations, assignments) designed to interrupt bias.
