Powerfully Negotiating Your Value

September 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Learn negotiation techniques that help women achieve an average of a 25%+ increase in their compensation packages.

Powerfully Negotiating Your Value

This workshop will help you frame your compensation ask. Sophie Warwick and Jillian Climie, co-founders of The Thoughtful Co, will walk through their compensation negotiation template that helps their clients achieve a +25% increase in their compensation package on average, and practice using it with other attendees.

Key takeaways include:

  • What elements should, and should not be brought up during a negotiation.
  • A powerful “script” to help guide you in all future negotiations.
  • Understanding how to articulate your unique strengths.
  • How to effectively prepare before a negotiation.
  • How women can combat the bias they face in negotiations.

This workshop is led by Jillian Climie, who has spent her career in executive compensation, and Sophie Warwick, who specializes in developing in-house gender equity policies and chairing Employee Resource Groups.

About this event

This event was made possible by SCWIST’s new project, Agency and Action to Prevent Gender-Based Violence in STEM Workplaces.

In the lead-up to International Equal Pay Day, this event aims to equip women with essential negotiation skills to bridge the gender pay gap, a significant global issue affecting women’s economic equality.

The same systemic biases that lead to pay inequity also contribute to workplace cultures where harassment and bullying are allowed to exist. By providing practical strategies and fostering confidence, SCWIST continues to advocate for fair and equal compensation, reinforcing the importance of addressing these interconnected issues to ensure women receive the pay and respect they deserve.
