Sponsored by: Females of Vision et al (FoVea)

Two panelists will share their thoughts on when and how to negotiate. Topics will include: knowing when to negotiate, how to prepare for negotiations, ways to demonstrate your skills, priorities, and needs while negotiating, and challenges that arise during negotiations, particularly for women. The panelists will each give a brief presentation, and then will take questions and comments from the audience and lead a discussion.
