Please join us for a Faculty of Science HeForShe panel discussion on Negotiation.
Regardless of what position you have applied for, chances are you will enter some form of negotiation if you are successful. But how can you effectively negotiate for equitable pay, benefits, and other position-specific items?
Featuring panelist Emanuela Heyninck, Commissioner, Ontario Pay Equity Commission, will provide background on systemic gender compensation issues, the Commissioner’s role in advocating for equal pay and the research surrounding negotiation issues.
Fellow panelists will provide perspectives on negotiation strategies specific to
- faculty positions (Prof. Bill Power, Chair, Department of Chemistry),
- university staff positions (Saja Al-Biladi, Employee Career Advisor, Centre for Career Action) and
- business positions (Dr. Jean Richardson, Director, Science and Business Program)
by highlighting how to approach negotiations, compensation packages, what can and cannot be negotiated for, and what support may be available to you when preparing for negotiations.
This event is open to all. Light refreshments will be provided.
