Salary Negotiations for Women in Tech

  • Aug 25, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The proposition: Put in a few hours of extra work now and be paid thousands of dollars more each year for the rest of your career.

Would you accept it?

Taking the time to develop and execute a salary negotiation could provide you with a significant earnings boost that you can enjoy year after year.  This workshop will discuss the psychology of negotiating, how to prepare for salary discussions, the negotiation process, and things to check before signing on the dotted line.

This workshop will be taught by Irene Hsieh.  She is a finance specialist with over 15 years experience working with Fortune 500 companies to startups negotiating financial transactions within the banking and technical fields.

Thank you Twilio for providing the great space and dinner!

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship.

    I found the mock negotiation most helpful. If anyone is interested in practicing negotiating like this (salary-related or otherwise), please message me and we can meet up.

    I am running pretty late due to a delayed train - will I need a pass to get up? Also, can I bring In a drink & a snack {starving} or is that faux pas?

      We have pizza here, there should be someone here to swipe you up for next hour.

    Reminder: when you get here, enter in, go up the tiny flight of stairs, and enter the open door to right. Go down the long hallway and a guy is there to swipe you into the elevator.

    I'm staying home sick, as well... Is there any way I can transfer my ticket to a friend, or apply it to the next time this seminar gets offered?

    I'm sorry I had to change my RSVP to no, I'm not feeling well today.

    I took the last iteration of this workshop and wanted to plug it. It really helps reframe how you think about negotiation as it can be mutually beneficial for both parties. It's about making sure you and everyone else are on the same page about your contribution and value. And it worked for me :) Thanks Irene for the all guidance!

      Many thanks for the feedback Truc. I'm thrilled to hear that it helped you!

    Will this be relevant to those who have non-technical jobs with tech companies? How about negotiating raises in existing positions versus negotiating new salaries?

    • Irene

      Hi Tricia, this will definitely be relevant to those who have non-technical jobs with tech companies. I do touch on negotiating raises, but most of the material is focused on negotiating new salaries. However, the majority of the content can be applied to any salary negotiation situation.
