April 2014 Books & Wine Club: Pushback by Selena Rezvani
April 30 • 6:30 - 8pm
In April, we'll be reading "Pushback: How Smart Women Ask--and Stand Up--for What They Want" by Selena Rezvani. Join us on Wednesday, April 30th at 6:30pm to discuss the book over a glass of wine (or two!)and network with other professional, ambitious women in Philadelphia while enjoying good company & good conversation. I'm limiting the group size to 12 women to better facilitate the discussion.

In Pushback, Selena Rezvani, a popular Washington Post columnist and noted leadership consultant, argues that self-advocacy is critical for success. And yet, she explains, women initiate negotiations four times less often than men, resulting in them getting less of what they want and deserve: promotion opportunities, plum assignments, and higher pay. It doesn't have to be this way, and in Pushback, Rezvani shines a light on the rules of holding your own and pushing back to secure what is rightfully yours.
Pushback provides a reliable and methodical approach for taking a firm position on the issues that matter most to you. Focusing on how women can hone their negotiation skills and techniques, Rezvani addresses the most pressing questions that professional women face as they prepare to make a stand on tough topics:
- What are the best strategies for confronting an issue head-on, without damaging a relationship?
- If I want to advocate fervently for an issue, how far do I push?
- What's the best way to take a firm position when my needs aren't being met or if I disagree?
- How can I negotiate my own career advancement?
