Join AWIS-STL to watch 2 videos on women & negotiation. Studies
show women are less likely to negotiate than men, but when they do
negotiate - they might receive backlash. We're watching 2 short videos
from experts that study women and negotiation to learn more about why
this happens and how to improve our negotiation skills. We'll discuss
our own experiences and ideas after the videos. Get this date on your calendar!
There will be some snacks and drinks! Invite your friends or coworkers. Men are welcome too.
