Working Moms, Natural Leaders (webinar)


Location: Webinar

Moms have the skills employers want, but can you get ahead?

Register for the next Bright Horizons® family webinar to learn how you can apply the "mom skills" you use every day at home to give yourself a boost at work.

Are you a new mom getting ready to return to work? Or have you been back at it for a while? Either way, you might be curious about the expectations — or lack thereof — you'll face in the office.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Research from the Bright Horizons Modern Family Index about today's working moms
  • Strategies you can use at work that you naturally use at home

Join us to explore what it means to “lead like a mom.”

Negotiation Training with Dr. Susan G. Williams


Location: B01 McCourtney Hall

At Notre Dame, negotiation is needed in a variety of circumstances: from effective communication with colleagues to negotiating a salary or contract. According to recent HBR research, 20% of women never negotiate at all. With a goal of building confidence in this very important area, the professional development committee for Thrive! has invited Dr. Susan G. Williams to lead a workshop on negotiating and influencing that you won't want to miss.

Dr. Williams is Professor Emerita of Management at Belmont University’s Jack C. Massey Graduate School of Business.  Her work focuses on negotiation, business narrative, continuous improvement, and strategic thinking.  Dr. Williams has consulted on these topics with a variety of institutions and organizations, including Disney, Education Networks of America, Caterpillar, The United Methodist Church, Cracker Barrel, Vanderbilt University, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  

Join us for this workshop to learn how to be a better negotiator by creating options that satisfy both parties, focusing on interests, and separating people from the problem. 

Signups will be limited to 44 individuals and will be available on a first-come, first served basis. Watch for the signup announcement in an upcoming newsletter this spring!
