During Odyssey Day she gave tips on negotiating with employers. She explained how to start in a position of power within yourself. The goal is to think about what you want and how you want to be viewed. Too many women ask only for what they think they can get. As we think of negotiating employment terms in the time of COVID-19, she recommends considering whether or not you want to physically return to work after a pandemic.
