Event Details

How do you win a raise? More vacation? Or the right to work from home? This class is geared toward women who want to learn how to ask for and get more from their employers and their careers. Joining Tribune business columnist Melissa Harris will be:

  • Victoria Medvec, a professor at the Kellogg School of Management and one the world’s top experts in women’s leadership and negotiations;
  • Laurel Bellows, president of the American Bar Association, whose  law practice focuses on helping senior executives negotiate salaries and benefits; and
  • Sheila O’Grady, an executive recruiter with Spencer Stuart and former president of the Illinois Restaurant Association and chief of staff to Mayor Richard M. Daley.

Medvec, who will open the program, is the founder and executive director of the Center for Executive Women at Kellogg. In addition, she is the CEO of Medvec and Associates, a consulting firm focused on high-stakes negotiations and decisions. She teaches these topics to executives and board members of companies around the world, including General Electric, Merck, Fideltiy Investments and Goldman Sachs. She also serves on the compensation committee of the board of Guaranty Financial Corp.


Bellows, principal of the Bellows Law Group, counsels senior executives and corporations on employment matters, employment and severance agreements, executive compensation and workplace disputes. She has advised companies on mid-level management compensation and benefit plans. She also is president of the American Bar Association, a volunteer position, and was the second woman president of the Chicago Bar Association.


O’Grady is an executive recruiter with Spencer Stuart’s education, nonprofit and government practice. She previously served as president of the Illinois Restaurant Association, the industry’s advocacy arm, during which time she founded the annual Chicago Gourmet food and wine festival in Millennium Park. Previously, she served as chief of staff to Mayor Richard M. Daley and on the interim board of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority.
