In her book, Women Don’t Ask, Linda Babcock revealed that only about 7% of women attempted to negotiate their first salary, while 57% of men did. Of those people who negotiated, they were able to increase their salary by over 7%.  That may not sound like much, but as Stanford negotiation professor, Margaret A. Neale, puts it, “If you and your counterpart who negotiated are treated identically by the company—you are given the same raises and promotions—35 years later, you will have to work eight more years to be as wealthy as your counterpart at retirement.”

IWL wants to help do something about this disparity.  We will host a Breakfast & Learn filled with practical salary and promotion negotiation tips and advice from experts.

Sarah E. Griffin, HR Director, Idaho Power Company

Lynnette M. Davis, Partner, Hawley Troxell

Paul Panther, Criminal Division Chief, Idaho Attorney General’s Office
