The 6 Money Lies Women Are Told
Sallie Krawcheck
“Be more confident. Lean in. You go, girl!” The idea that success is there for women to grab if we do everything *just right* feels good because it puts us in control. But it’s a lie. Even before the recession knocked so many women sideways, our forward progress had been stalled. Join Ellevest CEO Sallie Krawcheck to explore the money lies that are keeping us from financial equality and some critical truths that will help us get there.

Unravelling the Complexities of Compensation
Keisha Mistry
Most people have no idea if they’re being compensated fairly. According to an article from HBR, over 60% of respondents in their study undervalued their pay against industry standards for their role.

As a candidate looking for a new job or as an employee looking for a promotion, how do you know if the number that you’re being offered is fair? The answer is as simple as understanding derivatives in calculus.

Let’s start with the fact that salary is not the only contributing factor to compensation. It also includes vacation days, extended health benefits, professional development and the list could go on. You could be miscalculating hundreds (and hopefully not thousands) of dollars!

In this talk, “Unravelling the Complexities of Compensation” I will simplify the basics of compensation theory, break down the different facets of compensation and prepare you to ask the right questions in your next negotiation. You will leave this talk feeling empowered with the knowledge and understanding to take control of your compensation package. As Rihanna’s infamous saying goes ‘Pay me what you owe me’.

Financial Diplomacy in Relationships
Sam Anderson
Broaching the subject of personal finances can be difficult with a partner, especially if you both have different goals and plans on how to meet them. Discussions around money can turn very quickly in the wrong direction and both parties are left feeling frustrated. To make things worse, there really is no "right way" to talk about finances with your significant other. Every relationship is unique and how you communicate on this topic needs to take in account these idiosyncrasies. In this presentation, I hope to help you and your partner on your journey by sharing what did and did not work in my own personal relationship. And don't worry, we still very happy and well on our way in building the life we want together.

FAQ

Our mission is to give womxn access to conversations about money and we feel charging our attendees contradicts that mission.

No, everyone is welcome to attend. We believe in inclusion and we expect everyone to adhere to our Code of Conduct no matter how they identify.

Not at all. Feel free to join in according to your schedule.

Select talks and workshops will be recorded and made available for replay.

Yes, we understand the sensitivity of certain topics and will not pressure you to share your real name. However, at least for registration, we require full name and your LinkedIn profile in order to dissuade those with potentially bad intentions. We want this to be a safe space and a stringent registration process helps that effort.

We are dedicated to provide a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event at the discretion of the organizers and moderators. We also expect participants to respect the privacy of the speakers and fellow participants by not recording any of the content themselves. We will be providing post-recordings for any talks or workshops that have explicit consent from speakers.

This was born out of a viral Tweet by our organizer, Lily Konings. Soon after, she brought on her co-organizer, Pegah Abdolhosseini; design director, Teresa Man; events director, Shreya Sudarshana; and marketing director, Brittany Branscomb. Special thanks also to Madeline Grimes and Spandana Reddy for their help coordinating with speakers.
