I wanted to let you know about an event coming up next month in San Francisco. I’ll be busy in NYC with client work, so can’t attend, but I think it is an absolutely great idea, the need for which I recently Twittered about.

Girls in Tech Negotiations Workshop, presented by Katherine Barr, Mohr Davidow Ventures

Knowing how to effectively negotiate is an essential skill in the business world, whether for negotiating a job offer, promotion or raise; strategic planning or problem solving within a project team; or managing relationships with customers, partners and vendors. This interactive session offers insight into key negotiation tools that were first created by the Harvard Negotiation Project and introduced in the best-selling book Getting to Yes (used in major MBA programs globally), and are now being used successfully by thousands of companies around the world.

Hosted By Girls in Tech
Created in February of 2007, Girls in Tech was founded by technology marketing and PR maven Adriana Gascoigne. GIT was born to further support girls in an industry that, traditionally, has been primarily, well, mostly full of guys. GIT believes that we’d all be better off by developing better resources, cultivating stronger relationships and celebrating our achievements more often.

Girls in Tech is an organization which caters to intelligent, professional, and influential young women working in the technology industry. The organization is a membership driven group, which aims to provide tools and information to empower, encourage innovation,inspiration and involvement among its members, while seeking to collaborate with like-minded men in the industry.

Girls in Tech offers a variety of resources to women to supplement and further enhance their professional careers in technology. Some of these resources include networking functions, round table discussions, conferences, dinner engagements, and recruitment events.
