This workshop is designed for women who are moving to more senior stages of their career, and want to ensure they're being paid appropriately for the value they're delivering. Jillian and Sophie will touch on publicly disclosed executive compensation, and how you can use this information to negotiate. They'll also discuss how bias impacts women in negotiations at all levels of their career, and how to navigate these biases.
Key takeaways include:
How to read a proxy circular / management information circular (MIC) and what to look out for.
The importance of negotiating equity and bonus as you get more senior in your career.
How to frame your compensation ask.
Questions to ask on your equity compensation (stock options, restricted stock units, performance stock units, or share appreciation rights).
The biases women face in negotiations, and how to work around them.
