Speak Up! — Carnegie Mellon University’s proven negotiation workshop for girls — is coming to Washington, DC on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Don’t miss this unique opportunity for girls ages 7 to 12 to learn how to harness the power of negotiation.
Highlights will include Molly Barker, founder of Girls on the Run International, as keynote speaker; games and activities; and performances by the Georgetown University Step Team. Participants will learn to build confidence as effective negotiators; recognize more situations as negotiable; and embrace negotiation as preferable to accepting the status quo, engaging in direct conflict, or giving up.
The workshop is being sponsored by the Program for Research and Outreach on Gender Equity in Society(PROGRESS). The program, established by Dr. Linda Babcock of Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College, strives to examine and address the critical issue of gender inequity by providing negotiation tools based on sound academic research that empower all women and girls to reach their full potential.
