Whether you work in-house, at an agency or freelance, you're negotiating every single day. Negotiation skills are essential for everything from nailing a plum project and requesting resources and support to managing people and earning what you're worth.

In this 90-minute interactive webcast, free for all AIGA members, negotiation expert Lisa Gates will teach you three key ways to become a leader in your workplace and advance your career.

  1. Learn a repeatable negotiation strategy
  2. Recognize the subtle (and not-so-subtle) gender issues that impact your ability to advance
  3. Develop narratives that express your undeniable leadership value

This webcast is the first in a series of three organized by the AIGA Women’s Leadership Initiative on the topic of negotiation. The second, "Blueprint for Everyday Workplace Negotiation," took place on January 22, 2015 (watch the archived version here) and the third, "Set and Get Your True Market Value" takes place on March 19, 2015.
