*WEBINAR* Turning Useless Meetings into Valuable Collaboration

Tech companies thrive on collaboration. Most organizations bias towards collaboration via discussion, a fact that leads to the creation of a lot of meetings. Sometimes, these meetings are simply framed as “I know we need to discuss this thing” and the design and planning don’t go much further than that. This webinar is about getting people to think more deeply about the value of gathering groups together and how to make best use of their time.

*Webinar* Own Your Entrance & Exit: Negotiating Your Job Offer & Severance

The only thing more nerve-wracking than getting that job offer is negotiating the terms and conditions of your job once you get the offer. And the only thing more upsetting than that process is being laid off later, thinking you have no opportunity to negotiate a decent severance package.

By the end of the webinar, you’ll be able to:

- identify a strategy to approach negotiating job offers & severance deals 

- be alert to the very important gender issues involved in representing yourself well, whether with a male or female counterpart
