Ask For It Workshop Launch: Gender & Negotiation

  • WeWork 205 E 42nd St New York, NY, 10017 United States (map)

Women face specific issues in negotiation. Ashley Martin studies gender and diversity issues in organizations at Columbia Business School. She will share her expertise on what to look out for, how to combat gender-related problems and how to use gender to your advantage.

In this two-hour workshop, we'll learn how effective negotiators don't just get more of what they want, but also create positive relationships and reputations through the process.

Ashley teaches negotiation at Columbia Business School, and she will take you through leading research on gender and negotiation, giving you tools to apply the next time you're at the negotiating table. Then put your new skills into practice with a mock negotiation, facilitated by iDecisionGames.
