Title of Program: She’s Asking For It: When and How to Ask for the Business
Description of Program: An essential aspect of success for any attorney is to ask for the business (or the raise, or the budget, or a particular hire) and get it. It is often said that women are naturally good at building relationships. But surveys have shown that men tend to be more direct in pointing out their success and asking for what they want. Our panel of experts will explore the best methods for getting to the pitch or negotiating table, how to ask for what you want, and how to get what you ask for.
