This workshop will enable you to feel confident in asking for the compensation you deserve. We cover everything from how to navigate asking your manager for more money, to what you should be looking for before signing a new employment contract. We leave time for group discussion and Q&A to ensure all your questions are answered. This workshop is led by Jillian Climie, who has spent her career in executive compenworksation, most recently leading the equity compensation and executive compensation teams at Lululemon. Key takeaways from this workshop include:

  • What pieces of compensation & benefits are appropriate to push on (hint: beyond salary).
  • How compensation decisions are made within employers.
  • What you should and shouldn’t use as rationale for a pay increase.
  • The biases women face in negotiations, and how to work around them.
  • When you should be bringing up compensation, and how to frame the ask.
