BGIT X Women In Devops - Salary Negotiation

Reach for the outrageous numbers! Always negotiate your salary – your counterparts do.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Black Girls In Tech X Women in DevOps' latest networking initiative to tackle one of today’s biggest taboos: Salary negotiation.From thinking strategically to the power of self-advocacy, our interactive workshop explored the techniques and challenges involved with talking pay, and how to pilot a career in a world that’s built for someone else.

Our workshop leaders and expert panellists were: ✨ Flore Onasanya - Host at Women in DevOps ✨ Karen Emelu - Co-host and Chair at Black Girls in Tech✨ Fatima J. - Sr. Product Manager and Events Lead at Black Girls in Tech ✨ Naomi W. - Principal UX Researcher at Brain Station ✨ Greta Anderson - UX/UI Consultant at Manolo Blahnik✨ Stefania Chaplin - Solutions Architect at GitLab.

60% of women have never negotiated their salary (CNBC), and times are long overdue for a change. Through events like this, we can help raise awareness and provide others with the tools they need to break the mould and level up their careers.We would like to say a huge thank you to our panellists our hosts, Crypt on the Green, and our amazing audience who engaged with the workshop and kept the panel discussion flowing with their questions.
