Workshop 2: Understanding Gendered Communication Styles — Men and women are likely to choose different interpersonal responses to the same problem or situation. Find out what these are and why this happens. Men and women also have different frameworks for measuring success of daily interactions. When these frameworks are understood, a more positive, focused workplace will result.

Workshop 3: Negotiation & Conflict Resolution Skills for Women — We know that women make less money than men at the same jobs, and there is considerable research to draw on to understand what happens when men and women are "at the table" in a negotiation. Women can learn more assertive negotiation skills and be more aware of their image as they negotiate for themselves, their employees, and their companies. Assertive and clear communication is also a requirement for handling conflict in the workplace in a productive manner. Strategies will be learned and practiced by group.

LinkedIn is an effective networking platform, and its features (not just your “profile”) will be explained and demonstrated. Visibility, expertise, and cooperation will be discussed as part of creating a tailored, professional career development plan based on research about women's preferences and styles.
