WIN Summit 2017 Agenda
*Subject to change
Beginning as a young entrepreneur, Jennifer Walsh has built an extraordinary 20 year career in the extremely competitive health & beauty sector. On to her latest launch, The Healthy Entreprenaur, Jennifer has built a following of tens of thousands who seek advice, encouragement, endorsement and most of all expertise on how to negotiate your brand’s and your own success. In this lively and revealing keynote, she will share lessons she’s learned about negotiating as a woman in media outlets and manufacturing facilities dominated by men.
Dr. Fisher-Yoshida takes a systematic approach to working on both simple and complex issues with multiple stakehodlers pertaining to all phases of the negotiation process. She has more than 25 years’ experience in working with clients, students, and workshop participants on negotiation. Beth will speak from a global perspective on relational aspects of negotiation and the role communication plays in building these relationships.
How important is your Emotional IQ when you’re a woman negotiating? You don’t want to lose your temper, burst into tears, or sink into a funk while negotiating, but what about positive emotions? Can a positive, enthusiastic or calm attitude have a favorable impact on your negotiation? Coach and author, Ora Shtul discusses many common assumptions about women and negotiating with a special focus on the impact of emotions on the outcome of a negotiation.
Certain fields (aerospace, professional sports, high-tech, the financial sector) remain dominated by men at the top—and often in the trenches too. Because senior leadership tends to be largely male, and these men perpetuate a stereotype of the masculine-identified qualities required to become leaders (not to mention promoting people who most closely resemble themselves), cracking the door open in these fields has continued to be tough. Inc. Magazine’s, Kimberly Weisul, will lead a panel that discusses the particular challenges women face in a male-dominated workplace and introduces some of the strategies women find helpful as they try to stay afloat—and keep swimming.
Managing professionals from a different generation, whether they’re decades younger or significantly older and more experienced, requires sophisticated negotiating skills and a nuanced understanding of generational differences. Linda will lead a panel that aims to examine the differences between generations, delineate how negative stereotypes prevent mutual understanding, and identify ways to find common ground and make the most of each group’s strengths. This highly topical session will help you gain insight into your colleagues and enhance your skills in leading, inspiring, and collaborating across the ages.
One of the highest-regarded Washington Lobbyists, Linda Lipsen will share her experiences on “the Hill” as she negotiated on behalf of victims of negligence and wrong-doing to ensure their fair compensation. She will share how these experiences has shaped her personal negotiation skills.

Breakout 3: Negotiating for Work-Life Balance
Moderator: Susan Chin, Senior Correspondent for Gender Issues, The New York Times
In our globally competitive world, the skillful negotiator understands how cultural differences effect not just etiquette but negotiation strategy. Even more important is knowing how to manage differences in negotiation strategy without compromising your integrity. With thought-provoking questions posed by Susan Chin of The New York Times, the leaders on this panel will help you understand how to use culture to interpret the underlying motives and influences driving a negotiator’s behavior, explain how confrontation styles differ from one culture to another, and use different styles of information sharing to generate the knowledge you need to create value. You’ll come away prepared to work successfully with clients, colleagues, and competitors across the globe.
Dr. Racioppi, using her 25 years of experience helping leading organizations attract, retain and develop female talent, will pinpoint three proven strategies for bolstering a woman’s career. First, she’ll share insights on how and why women need to assess and, as needed, evolve their view of themselves. Second, Dr. Racioppi will highlight the way to build effective networks…ones that are defined by success, not numbers. Then, based on her independent research, she will discuss how women can develop honest mentoring relationships that provide them with needed feedback, often missing in their interactions with their managers.
This “triple header” of proven strategies will result in participants leaving the session with actionable approaches for achieving their career goals, for increasing their contributions to their companies and for improving their ability to negotiate for themselves and for their organizations.
Diane will moderate a panel of leaders who will discuss the problems and the surprising benefits women encounter when negotiating with other women, and explores ways for women to build “sisterhood,” empower each other, and make the most of the “Female Advantage.”
“As the demographics of the educated workforce change and organizations see the business value of getting more women into leadership roles, male business leaders have begun to support women’s efforts to achieve wage parity and climb the corporate ladder. Nowhere is this support more crucial than in the realm of negotiating. Since studies show that men respond negatively when women behave “too aggressively,” forward-thinking male leaders have begun to check their reflex to push back when women advocate for their own advancement. They’re also looking for ways to change the culture of their organizations to make everyone more receptive to “women who ask.” We’ll introduce the challenges—and the importance—of achieving gender equality in the workforce from the leadership perspective.”
