Salary Negotiation for Women: The Latest Research & Cutting-Edge Best Practices

Panel Discussion/Presentation

Women face unique challenges when it comes to negotiating. Research continues to confirm that the gender wage gap persists even when taking into consideration job level, differences in preferences, and family leave. Gender differences in salary negotiations could be one of several determinants of perpetual gender differences in labor market outcomes. Yet, this gap is multi-dimensional and complex.

Three internationally known scholars will share their research on salary negotiation for women as it relates to gender differences and challenges. They will also offer research-based skills, tools, and strategies that will not only assist women in negotiating more effectively but will also benefit managers and leaders who are focused on addressing Utah’s vast talent shortage by recruiting and retaining more women employees.

Relaunching Your Career: Tools & Strategies for Women Returning to the Workforce

Panel Discussion/Presentation

Many Utah women take career breaks for various reasons, including raising children, assisting with elder care, and managing other responsibilities. Eventually, many women want to relaunch their careers, whether it is full-time, part-time, or even contract work. Yet, relaunching is intimidating for so many women. Often, we feel that we are not prepared for professional work after being at home and outdated in terms of skills, competencies, and professional networks. Don’t lose hope because you are more prepared than you think!

This engaging panel of experts and launchers will provide experiences, insights, tools, tips, and strategies for women returning to the workforce—whether you are thinking about it or already have a “job” but want a “career.” Join us as we discuss how to be successful in relaunching your career!

Conflict Management for Women: Skills, Strategies, and Solutions

Workshop/Training

The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our Spring Workshop.

Is what you are doing in conflict working for you? Are you getting what you hope for? Are you able to cultivate connection, cooperation, trust, or peace? Clair and Carlee have spent the last five years gathering research, testing ideas, and training learners on what really works for managing conflict. From this work, they have developed a framework that creates a new mindset and language for approaching conflict.

This new mindset can transform how relationships, businesses, and communities prosper and thrive when there is resistance, discord, or clashing values. This framework has shifted how thousands of individuals view and engage in conflict. Join us for a workshop designed for women to learn specific skill sets, strategies, and processes that help find flow and peace in conflict.
