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!

Our ULI Urban Revitalization Council Day was really two days — with tours, panels and speakers helping us explore and understand Dallas’ changes, efforts and progress within the urban core. (It’s a completely different city than when I lived there 20+ years ago.) For one, there’s been a fascinating transformation of 60s, 70s and 80s-style monolithic corporate structures into residential, “new” office and lifestyle-engaging endeavors. While it maintains it’s capitalistic intensity, one felt a “softening” around the edges, a desire to recognize and infuse livability throughout. More parks and green space, better infrastructure and an aesthetic intent are all visible. The days’ tours and panels certainly asked us to think deeply about social equity — which will be an important theme for our Council Day in Seattle in the Spring. As Chair of URC Gold, it’s an honor to be a part of this incredible group of real estate professionals.
