Women Lead Webinar Series

Exclusively for Premium Access Pass members

Even if they’re familiar with the old adage, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease,” many women are reluctant to ask for what they want in the workplace. In this webinar, we’ll ask Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management professor Michelle Duguid to answer some big questions: Why are women less likely to “ask” than their male counterparts? When they do ask, why do they ask for less? And most importantly, how can women overcome these obstacles to achieve more success?

Women’s unwillingness to ask for what they want puts us at a significant disadvantage. It has been cited as a primary reason for the gender wage gap and disparity of women in leadership positions. 

If you’re not planning to join this webinar, ask yourself why—because it’s an opportunity to break free from behaviors and beliefs that could be holding you back. Asking for what you want at work is directly connected with advancing your career, making the most of your skills, and earning more money. 

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How to identify the implicit and explicit barriers that prevent women from getting more of what they want and need.
  • Strategies that empower you to ask—and successfully negotiate—for what you want. 
  • Why your willingness to “ask” helps change the status quo for women everywhere.

The webinar is presented by:
