Objectives: Women may have equivalent or higher skills than men, but often lack confidence compared to their male colleagues. This makes women less successful in the workplace, where overconfidence often trumps competence.



Workshop objectives include:



• Understanding the ramifications of gender differences in confidence levels and its impact on career advancement

• Recognizing the skills at which you excel

• Identifying ways to promote your skills in order to get recognition

• Learning proven strategies to negotiate for what you want so that the negotiation doesn't backfire



UM Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Program is excited to present this workshop to our science and engineering campus community and to the broader geographic community.

While aimed at undergraduate and graduate students, post doctoral fellows and interested faculty and staff are welcome and will find the workshop relevant and energizing.

Sponsors: UM Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Program and Praxaire.
