While every woman's career is unique, there are common professional milestones for many - from negotiating an offer of employment to asking for a promotion or a raise. Some may find themselves in a situation where they have to negotiate a severance agreement. Others may want to strike out on their own and start a business. While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to negotiation, there are key issues to consider at each stage of employment. This workshop - led by both an attorney who specializes in employment issues and a financial planner who works with women in technology - is designed to give you a roadmap on how to pursue your life goals through effective management of your career and finances. To be discussed:
*Compensation and non-compensation issues to think about at each stage of your career
*The impact of your benefits over time
*How your career and financial management strategies go hand-in-hand.
