How to Ask for More Money – and Get What You Deserve

When: Thursday 27th September
Where: Wiggin LLP, 9th Floor, Met Building, 22 Percy Street, London W1T 2BU  ( just off Tottenham Court Rd)
Time: 18.30 drinks. Panel 19.15 to 20.15.
Drinks and networking until 21.00           


When it comes to asking for more money, whether you are on staff or freelance, is something women are bad at. Younger women frequently underestimate their worth; older women, often having had a career break for children, just seem to be grateful just to have the work at all. Men don’t see a problem.
​ ​
But negotiating is a vital skill that will get you the pay you deserve and help close the gender gap. We want to empower our members, and our panel will tell you what mistakes women often make in pay negotiations, how to prepare, how to get what you want – and what you are worth.

Chaired by Jem Collins, digital journalist and editor, founding director  of @JournoResources and this years winner of our Georgina Henry Award
