A Discussion About the Importance of Negotiation

Sponsored by AMWA, GWIM, &
the Office of Diversity & Inclusion at GUSOM

All students, faculty, staff invited to participate!

Negotiation is the secret weapon you didn’t know you were missing until now! Join us to read Getting to Yes, a book by Roger Fisher and William Ury about tried and true strategies for successful negotiation in the workplace and in life. More here: http://amzn.to/2j9CsWY

We will be using readings from Getting to Yes as a starting point for discussions about why negotiation is such an important skill and how strong negotiation is crucial to ensuring your compensation and position match your worth throughout your career. 

The book club will meet in-person on the evenings of 2/1, 2/21, 3/22, and 4/19. There will be an option to also participate virtually via ZOOM.

We hope that you can attend all 4 discussions, but if not, you are welcome to join for any individual sessions that fit your schedule.

Get a Free Copy of the Book!
Copies of Getting to Yes will be provided for the first twenty students to sign up by AMWA and the first twenty faculty/staff by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Be the first to sign up below! We will notify you if you get a free copy.


Note: The first meeting on Wednesday, 2/1 will be over dinner from 7-9 pm held at Dean Cheng's house in DC.

Create a mindful mindset for return
Map out logistics (including child care, pumping and not pumping, sick days, and dealing with the unexpected)
Turn leave into a leadership opportunity at work
Build supportive communities to help new moms with the return to work.
