An event focussed on helping women get a better wage is taking place in London next week, run by Sound Women.
Sound Women, the networking and development group for women in audio, says 76% of women have never raised the subject of more money with their boss, so there is a need for better negotiating skills in the workplace.
Sound Woman Caroline Elliot will chair a discussion with experts on on Tuesday 3rd December as they share theories on why women fail to ask for pay rises, discuss tactics and explain how to research your own value.
On the panel will be Rachel Stock, HR Director of Hearst Magazines, formerly at the BBC, Random House and Harvey Nichols. She has several years of experience, negotiating all levels of pay, from new joiners to board directors.
Media Strategist Simon Terrington founded Human Capital in 1995, where he advised organisations including BBC, Channel 4 and 10 Downing Street. An experienced employer, over the last fifteen years, he has written many papers and books, presented radio programmes and spoken at numerous industry conferences.
Heather Jackson is Chief Executive and Founder of An Inspirational Journey, an organization which works to address the imbalance of talent that exists at the top of corporate Britain, so that the best can lead regardless of gender. She started Women’s Business Forum and is a regular contributor to regional and national media.
The event starts at 6:15pm in Room AG21, College Building, City University, London and then, from 730pm, there will be a networking event at The Peasant, 240 St John Street.
