Negotiation happens around us constantly. Whether we are negotiating a new role in our professional lives, or determining whose turn it is to walk the dog in our personal lives, negotiation is both necessary and inescapable.

Women and non-binary individuals often face unique challenges when entering into negotiations. In addition, numerous factors—including cultural heritage, social/economic status and background, and upbringing—can impact approaches used by negotiators and reactions to them.

Join a panel of Princeton alumnae from diverse backgrounds and industries for the second in a series of sessions focusing on strategies for women and non-binary individuals to achieve positive outcomes in negotiating for themselves. In this session, which will build on core skills discussed during the first session in 2021, panelists will address key issues many negotiate during their first 15 years after college. These professional issues include starting salary, raises and promotions, obtaining good assignments and training, remote work options, working with a mentor, and parental leave. If an alumna has a partner, personal issues to negotiate may include whether to have children (if so, when, how many and how to manage parenting responsibilities), where to live, financial management, and how to enjoy free time. Subsequent sessions will focus on effective negotiation strategies for issues likely to arise in middle age and retirement.

Following the panel discussion, attendees will have the chance to network and reflect with one another in breakout rooms.
