Where the Money Resides:

Demystifying Academic Job Negotiations

A Conversation with Gloria L. Blackwell & Dr. Ashley Farmer 

Monday, March 27, 3 p.m. ET


Join CEO Gloria L. Blackwell in conversation with AAUW American Fellowship alumna Dr. Ashley Farmer as they discuss her recent collaborative project, Where the Money ResidesDemystifying Academic Job Negotiations.

The project is the result of a conversation between Dr. Ashanté Reese and Dr. Farmer as they considered new academic job offers: What do people ask for when negotiating jobs? Though they had each negotiated job offers in the past, they realized that, other than asking for more, they did not know how to negotiate or what the landscape of possibilities looked like.

Learn from their survey results how to create a more open and collective approach to academic job negotiations.
