Former WiT organizer Ashley Quinto Powell will empower you to recognize your worth and learn how to have hard discussions. She gives "the talk" on salary negotiations in hopes that more women will move toward a breadwinning salary. We may be savvy developers, but we don’t always know how to approach a negotiating table. We aren’t sure what we should ask for or how we should ask for it - and overwhelmingly, we just don’t ask for more than we’re offered.

Ashley will share stories and valuable insight from years of experience negotiating with consultants on behalf of clients, with clients on behalf of the company, with employees and for herself to help you gain a competitive edge.


Walk away with tools to understand your value in the marketplace, have some techniques to get what you deserve, and the guts to go do it!


We have the John Wayne room reserved, starting at 11:30am. Arrive anytime between 11:30 and 11:50 to get settled and order lunch; Ashley's presentation will start promptly at noon.


Vintage's menu includes an array of gluten-free and vegetarian offerings; vegan options admittedly might be tricky:


Vintage Brewing is an accessible building; there's a large parking lot, and for busing, it's about a block from West Transfer Point.
