    In alignment with IWL's strategic focus on empowerment, the Lunch and Learn Committee invites you to join us for its virtual Circuit Training of 2021 focusing on negotiations for salary and benefits and finding your own worth!

    This webinar will have various "circuits" which will include the following topics and speakers:

    1. Negotiations and Interview Considerations at the Initial Stages of Your Legal Career: Tara Malek, Owner/Attorney, Smith + Malek  

    2. Modern Trends and Considerations in Negotiations Beyond the Law Firm: Stacy Pearson, VP and Chief Financial Officer, Washington State University

    3. Finding Your Worth Throughout Your Legal Career: Jim Cook, Executive Director, Idaho Legal Aid Services, Inc.

    Attendance will be limited so sign-up soon! For those local to the Boise area that sign up before November 19th, gift bags will be delivered prior to the event for you to enjoy during the event. 

    We encourage you to treat yourself to a "virtual" happy hour by having some snacks and a beverage of choice at the ready so you can both relax and engage in these discussions. 

    We look forward to seeing you on Zoom!
