Zero to Hero: Build your Value + Become an Asset at Work

Lauren Hasson

Far too many of our nation’s best and brightest women work as hard as they can to advance their careers without really understanding how important it is to build their value and communicate their worth. It’s time to teach women how to work smarter, not just harder, to become more effective and invaluable to the companies they work with. Lauren shares her personal story of going from zero network, zero skills, and zero job prospects to becoming a highly valued, top engineer with global connections in just two short years. Women (and men, too!) will come away with steps they can take to immediately start building their value and become indispensable at work and in their own careers.

Become a Negotiat[Her]: Learn the Secrets to make more $ in your career

As women, salary negotiation is an essential skill, but negotiating isn’t always so easy. Imposter syndrome, fear, and unconscious bias are real adversaries that can get in your way to a successful negotiation and earning what you deserve. The good news is that negotiation is a skill that can be learned. DevelopHer’s founder shares how she tripled her base salary in less than two years by grounding herself in data and asking critical questions to uncover key leverage points and ultimately learned to negotiate with confidence. Women will learn actionable steps they can take themselves to not only uncover their true market value, but also negotiate for the salary they deserve.
