How to Defeat Unconscious Bias
Why is it that so many women underprice their services … and then over deliver?
Deep down it may be that we don’t fully value ourselves.
It can manifest in myriad ways – whether negotiating against ourselves or highlighting all the reasons your product isn’t yet perfected, or what went wrong with a launch or a project … when men tend to focus on turning adversity into a positive.
Valerie Alexander is a nationally recognized voice on Unconscious Bias and the Advancement of Women. Author of Happiness as a Second Language, and How Women Can Succeed in the Workplace (Despite Having “Female Brains”), Valerie is also a keynote and TedX speaker, tech CEO, bestselling author and Hollywood screenwriter who started her career as an IPO lawyer and investment banker in Silicon Valley.
Listen to learn:
- How to stop negotiating against yourself
- How to turn a setback or failure into an asset
- Why women sometimes fail to take their own advice
- What it takes for women to get out of a scarcity mindset and support each others’ advancement
- Why every woman in business needs to focus on creating leveragable property assets – intellectual or physical – to provide sufficient passive income to allow her to live her dreams
- And much more!
