This article is focused on a particular field; archives, but I found the content clear, compelling and useful for anyone negotiating a long-term contract, piece of business or salary. It is aimed toward women, given the idea that we don’t tend to negotiate our salaries, and not doing so impacts the gender wage gap.

Written by Maureen Callahan, (who also happens to be my daughter!) it speaks to why we work (money), who to negotiate with (HR, not your direct report), separating their budget issues from yours, and the slippery concept of “merit increases”. Enjoy!
