We’ve teamed up with Ladies Get Paid to host a morning salon for female-identifying designers. Join DC Design Week on Tuesday morning before you head off to work for an intimate, roundtable discussion with Ladies Get Paid. Engage in a guided discussion around equipping women in tech and design with tactics for salary negotiation, embracing ambition and getting paid what they deserve (aka: more).
Breakfast will be provided.
Registration opens at 7:30am Discussion begins at 7:45am
Event wraps up promptly at 9:00am so you can get back to earning those dollars!
Ladies Get Paid will be hosting two salons simultaneously to try and make this event as accessible as possible. If the SE location in Navy Yard is not convenient for you, check out the event page for the salon in Chinatown here!
