Event Details

As a part of the Mentor and Professional Development (MPD) program, members of Women in International Security (WIIS) and the Women’s Mentoring Network (WMN) at Brookings Institution are invited to participate in a seminar on salary negotiation. Participants will learn techniques and tips for salary negotiation, and have the opportunity to practice newly learned negotiation skills during two exercises. This salary negotiation seminar is being taught by Dr. Margaret New, founder and CEO of The Middleburg Group, LLC, a career coaching consultancy. Dr. New has 30 years of experience coaching women with job search skills and salary negotiation.

Participant outcomes:

  • Participants will understand why women in the past have not received the salary that a man has received for same work 
  • Participants will understand and be able to use the BATNA (Best Alternative to a Negotiated Agreement)
  • Participants will have the opportunity to practice two salary negotiation exercises
  • Participants will have the opportunity to match up with a fellow participant for further salary mentoring.

*Please note, this seminar will be limited to 25 participants to ensure one-on-one coaching. This seminar will be offered September 30 and November 12, with the possibility of subsequent sessions depending on levels of interest. At this time only members of WIIS and WMN will be invited to participate.

WIIS and the Women Mentoring Network

Women In International Security is the premier global network of women and men dedicated to advancing the leadership and professional development of women in international peace and security. WIIS (pronounced "wise") also supports research, analysis, and policy engagement on the critical nexus between gender and international security.

The Women's Mentoring Network is a grassroots organization launched in the spring of 2008 that aims to generate support for women within the Institution by fostering networking opportunities, building strategies for career progression and advancement, and identifying challenges faced uniquely by women as well as ways to overcome them.  WMN strives to promote an egalitarian environment at Brookings, and all employees are encouraged to attend WMN events.
