Workshop – Compensation Negotiation 101 for Director Levels and Above

Wednesday, Apr 19, 2023

Join CREW Vancouver for the second workshop in a series led by The Thoughtful Co. This workshop is focused on executive compensation and is designed for women at Director-levels or above who are advancing to more senior stages of their career and wish to learn more about compensation negotiation including equity compensation.

CREW Vancouver is committed to our mission of connecting Vancouver’s commercial real estate industry to advance women leaders.

With the success of our first workshop on the topic of negotiation in 2022, we are pleased to offer a workshop series for 2023 consisting of five workshops scheduled throughout the year.

Workshop Overview

This workshop is designed for women who are moving to more senior stages of their careers and want to ensure they’re being compensated appropriately for the value they’re delivering. Learn about publicly disclosed executive compensation and how you can use this information to negotiate. Discuss how bias impacts women in negotiations at all levels of their careers, and how to navigate these biases.  There will be group discussion and Q&A time to ensure all your questions are answered.

Key takeaways from this workshop include:

  • How to read a proxy circular/management information circular (MIC) and what to look out for.
  • The importance of negotiating equity and bonus as you get more senior in your career.
  • How to frame your compensation ask.
  • Questions to ask on your equity compensation (stock options, restricted stock units, performance stock units, or share appreciation rights).
  • The biases women face in negotiations and how to work around them.
