We operate under the radical philosophy that there is nothing wrong with women. Nothing to fix.


In fact, we like to ask, “What would the world look like if everyone negotiated like a woman?”

We know the personal, cultural and political landscapes that impact your ability to ask for what you want, and we help you overcome them. Not just because you demand it or deserve it, but because the world needs what you have to offer, and without women, business suffers (people and profits).

We’ve been frequent contributors to The Daily Muse, Forbes and LinkedIn, and the work of She Negotiates has been featured on NPR, CNN, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Glamour, Real Simple, and many others.

UNCERTAIN WHAT A HUNDRED BUCKS WILL BUY? Here’s what one client said

THANK YOU for our conversation about my career and my ‘second act’ pivot. I took so many notes during our brief conversation, and you have really inspired me to think differently. You were able to diagnose my seemingly complex feelings about my career within minutes. (I'm still amazed.) Not only that, but you have changed my outlook: I got on the phone feeling perplexed about my next career moves and got off the phone feeling more motivated and inspired than ever. I immediately printed out all of your recommended documents and I am doing my homework and trying to answer your suggested questions (going one at a time because it's hard work!). I'm going to take all of that to heart over the next two months and connect with you again in the future.
