Upcoming Events

March 13 - Both Sides of
Negotiating Equal Pay
More Information and Registration

Add to Calendar 03/13/2019 06:00 PM 03/13/2019 8:30 PM America/New_York Both Sides of Negotiating Equal Pay Sometimes you are the employee negotiating a new job, raise, or end of year bonus. Other times, you are the manager negotiating those same things on behalf of your employer. Regardless of your role, your actions impact the equality of the ultimate compensation decision. Both Sides of Negotiating Equal Pay teaches you how some of the best practices in hiring, promotion, and review processes prevent achieving pay equity, ironically by assuming equality already exists. More importantly this workshop will share what you can do in both roles to close gender and other pay gaps. Sanofi Genzyme, 50 Binney St Cambridge, MA 02142

April 10 - Managing Up
More Information and Registration

Add to Calendar 04/10/2019 06:00 PM 04/10/2019 8:30 PM America/New_York Managing Up How can you effectively negotiate the relationship that has the most impact on your career, and still be yourself? How can you have power with your manager, being cooperative and expressive? Managing up is not about manipulation or capitulation. Rather it’s learning to influence with respect, and broaden your horizons to speculate about the pressures and demands which may be outside of your view. It’s about influencing diplomatically yet authentically. Being intentional about challenging a plan. How can you get what you need at the same time you’re focusing on what your manager needs? bluebird bio, 60 Binney Street, 10th Floor, Aviary Room, Cambridge, MA 02142

- Finding your Voice 
Among all the Chatter
More Information and Registration

Add to Calendar 05/15/2019 06:00 PM 05/15/2019 8:30 PM America/New_York Finding your Voice Among all the Chatter We all have an inner dialogue that can sabotage the best of intentions. Just because we want to say something, doesn’t mean that we are able to. Sometimes our body does something different! Have you ever gone into a meeting determined to speak your mind or prepared to take a stand and when you have the chance, you feel like you can’t? We all have that internal chatter that speaks so loudly it takes over our voice sometimes. Oftentimes, that voice is the voice of other people from our past. Our mind can be very good at recalling instances when we were shut down or shamed paving the path for our body to repeat those patterns. In this workshop, Andrea will share practices and strategies for you to take that step to speak your voice.  We will explore the historical and habitual patterns we have adopted that have shaped who we are and have the opportunity to reflect on our experience with fellow learners.Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Cambridge, 300 Third Street, Bella A, Cambridge, MA 02142
