Looking for Summer Enrichment?

In accordance with WISE’s mission of promoting professional development skills, WISE will be hosting a summer book club on the topic of negotiation! We will read “Ask For It: How Women Can Use the Power of Negotiation to Get What They Really Want” by Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever. 

From the authors of Women Don’t Ask, the groundbreaking book that revealed just how much women lose when they avoid negotiation, here is the action plan that women all over the country requested—a guide to negotiating anything effectively using strategies that feel comfortable to you as a woman. All genders welcome! 

The book club will take place every Tuesday in June at 5:30 pm. Location TBD. 
Books and dinner will be provided.
