WISTAR3's Salary Negotation Workshop with Dr. Nina Fefferman and Dr. Debra L. Miller

WISTAR3, a student organization that focuses on the needs of graduate women in STEM fields, is sponsoring a salary negotiation workshop open to all students on February 10th in the Min Kao Building (Room 524) from 5:00pm-6:30pm.

The workshop will be conducted as a presentation followed by a Q&A session available in-person and online.

The discussion will focus on demystifying the process of job negotiation. The workshop will cover the what, when, and how of the phases of getting job offers, engaging in negotiations, and accepting positions. The workshop will also talk about the types of things applicants should think about (not just salary!) and different ways to approach negotiating to make everyone comfortable while still being able to advocate for their own needs. The workshop will spend a little bit of time talking about how issues of identity can frame negotiations and different techniques for approaching negotiating conversations. The conversation will include both general advice and discussion of specific scenarios.

The keynote speakers are: Dr. Nina Fefferman, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology with the College of Arts and Sciences; and Dr. Debra L. Miller, Professor of Forestry, Wildlife, and Fisheries with the UT Institute of Agriculture.

Thursday, February 10 at 5:00pm to 6:30pm
