Upcoming Women in Energy Events—Spring 2015

We are excited to announce a series of upcoming Women in Energy-hosted or sponsored events for Spring 2015. Additional details are below:

Negotiation Skills Workshop (co-sponsored by SIPA Women in Energy)

Monday, March 30, 6:15 pm to 8:00 pm
International Affairs Building, Rm 501B

In this exclusive workshop by experienced facilitator Jamie Lee for SIPA Women In Energy, attendees will roll up their sleeves to engage in confidence-building mock negotiation sessions. Together, we’ll explore ways to take smart, calculated risks in the workplace through mutual win negotiation strategies. Instead of settling for what’s “safe or reasonable,” you’ll be challenged to think bigger for your future success. Instead of second guessing, you’ll practice articulating your value in a clear and effective manner that places you firmly in a position of power. Dinner will be provided. There is a subsidized workshop fee of $10; early bird fee is $8 if you register by March 22!
