Challenges of Women Breadwinners – Compensation Negotiation Strategies

 

Women are increasingly controlling more of the nation’s wealth, and the rise of the breadwinner woman is causing seismic shifts in our families, our communities and our marketplace. Unfortunately, many women are uncomfortable with this role and do not feel they are getting the level of professional advice or workplace support they need. Although pressure could cause women to ‘lean back’ from major financial decisions, the opposite is happening in that they are ‘leaning in,’ making sound financial advice even more important.

 

Page and Vicki will discuss how companies are (and aren’t) serving Breadwinner Women, as well as:


• Is a career change in your future? Should you consider one?

• What are you leaving on the table?

• What is that job offer really worth?

Zap the Generational Gap!

Think you've already heard everything about the multiple generations? Think again!

 

Our generations and the gaps that separate them are in constant flux, what worked last year probably won't work today. Anybody still using their VCR?  What seemed like a perfect solution yesterday is the source of tomorrow's problem. You really need to get all those home movies put on disc! … Wait! I mean Digital Storage. Oh No! I mean The Cloud!

 

The potential for collision, conflict and confusion between the generations has never been greater and the chasm is growing wider every day we ignore the problem.

 

Meagan Johnson demonstrates, through her own experience and in depth research that all generations have differences and strengths that go beyond mere age and appearance.

 

Join us for this webinar to learn what you can do right now to make the most of all the generations.
