April 12 was Equal Pay Day - a day that symbolizes how far into this year women had to work to earn what men made... LAST year. Ask For It teamed up with NYC Lady Project to host a negotiation seminar at the Idealist Careers HQ to mark the day.
Thanks to Jhia Jackson for her thoughtful, thorough recap of our event.
I admit it, I am a hesitant negotiator. Between setting low expectations or feeling awkward in the moment, I often miss out on opportunities to create my ideal situation. If this sounds like it may apply to you as well, don’t worry! We are not alone.
