AMITA New England Events


Job Offer Negotiation Strategies
Wednesday, September 17
Please join AMITA for an evening of networking and an interactive facilitated conversation about job offer negotiations.  We will discuss sound negotiation principles, and we will use stories and examples to illustrate how to apply them to this important set of conversations.  We will also address some of the gender dynamics that women face in negotiation.  While the focus of the discussion will be on job offer conversations, many of the negotiation principles that we will review can be applied more broadly in a variety of professional and personal negotiations. RSVP


 For details on upcoming events and events for our chapters and affiliated organizations, please see our Events Page.
