This special Working Women@Wake series delves into research around gender and negotation to help you expand your negotiation comfort zone and build your negotiation skills. The series combines discussion-based learning and experiential application across multiple sessions in February and March.

This Women's Center offering is based on the book Ask for It: How Women Can Use the Power of Negotiation to Get What They Really Want. Written by Linda Babcock, the James M. Walton Professor of Economics at Carnegie Mellon University, and writer Sara Laschever, whose work has appeared in the New York Times and the Harvard Business Review, among other publications, Ask for It is the how-to companion that grew out of the team's earlier research project, Women Don't Ask.

The first 15 registrants will receive a free copy of the book, which they may keep if they attend at least four of the weekly practice sessions, Feb. 16-Mar. 16.

Participants must register by and attend the Feb. 2 session; because this series builds on learning in each previous session, new participants will not be able to join after Feb. 16.

Please note slight meeting time variation at the start of the series. All sessions will be held in Reynolds Gym, A330 Seminar Room. We welcome you to bring your lunch.
