This workshop will teach you the fundamentals of stock options and restricted stock units (RSUs), and give you the knowledge and tools to confidently negotiate your equity compensation. Led by Jillian Climie, Co-Founder of The Thoughtful Co, it will teach you how stock options and RSUs work, the key questions to ask around them, and what areas are most negotiable. Jillian has spent her career in executive compensation, most recently leading the equity compensation and executive compensation teams at Lululemon.

Key takeaways:

  • Stock options 101: what they are, how they work, and key terms
  • Restricted stock units (RSUs) 101: what they are, how they work, and key terms
  • Important questions to ask about your equity before signing on
  • The gender pay gap in equity compensation
  • Why equity compensation is so important (hint: long-term wealth creation, and more negotiable)
