While many organizations still lag in the drive for gender parity, others are providing models for how to drive change today: Women CEOs, directors, and founders who have forged their own paths and are paving the way for others; men in the C-suite who are leading networks to advance women’s leadership; companies who have transformed recruitment, talent management, leadership development, mentorship, and approaches to mitigate bias. These leaders and their organizations have seen how inclusion can drive innovation and business results, and they have case studies, actionable strategies, and inspiration to share.
The Conference Board’s 2019 Women’s Leadership Conference is uniquely qualified to convene these leaders to demonstrate how we drive change in 2019. It is the remarkable confluence of Conference Board resources with a format that co-creates with our attendees that makes this experience different:

Research – and often our own experiences – indicate that women do not get to negotiate on a level playing field. This reality makes the need to continuously elevate negotiation skills and strategies even more crucial. The Negotiation Excellence Workshop is a fully immersive, interactive experience in which insights from master negotiators and coaches are accompanied by exercises, role-playing, and active training in negotiation skills. This one-day investment will leave you with insights and experiences that could change the course of your next negotiation with peers, vendors or clients – and provide new, unique skill sets, frameworks and strategies to enhance leadership development in your organization.
Why do some of our negotiations fall short of success? Why do others end with sought-after outcomes, including attractive financial terms and strong relationships? Award-winning researcher and teacher on negotiation Daniel Ames pushes back against some commonly-held “pinhole” views about bargaining, urging a “panoramic” view instead. We will begin the day by walking through the Five Dramas framework, a systematic way of thinking and preparing that is tied to negotiation success and put the ideas into practice immediately by applying the framework to current situations. We will also take stock of ourselves as negotiators, sketching takeaways about our own development and setting the stage for the rest of the day.
As Chief Human Resources Officer of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Mary Lee Hannell is responsible for a comprehensive labor relations strategy across 23 unions, including direct negotiations for twelve civilian and police unions. Discover what she’s learned negotiating while an agency’s labor relationships and some of the nation’s most important infrastructure are at stake – and how these lessons can be applied to crucial negotiations at every level. Then share insights and questions in small-group discussions and report-outs.
Some research suggests that women begin their careers with, on average, less confidence than their male peers. Other studies suggest that even when women are equally confident in their abilities, they are less likely to promote themselves – and may receive different reactions when they do than the reactions their male colleagues receive. Closing this “confidence gap” is an essential element in strengthening one’s negotiating muscle. In this interactive session we will learn to understand the gap in
confidence and/or self-promotion and learn and practice new strategies and exercises to close the gap for oneself or for others.
