Lean In Canada’s Vancouver Chapter welcomes Lisa Kershaw to lead the discussion on Salary Negotiations. According to research, only 34% of women negotiate their salary and benefits. This often leads to them getting underpaid thus, further widening the gender wage gap. The important thing to remember is that the need to negotiate doesn’t end once you’ve secured your dream job. It’s important for your career to consistently request promotions and salary increases. To do this, you must be clear on your own worth, and have a concrete plan in place as you approach your boss.
So if you’ve been wondering how to negotiate your way to a better salary and benefits, whether you’re starting a new job or continuing with the one you’ve had for years, join us on November 4th to gain confidence as you embark on your negotiating journey!
