“Early on in life, learning how to get my parents and teachers to say that magical word - “yes” - was something I knew was necessary. In the beginning I used my youth and kindness… thankfully, my experience has evolved.” – Julia Puntoriero

Women face some harsh stereotypes in the workplace. Here are the ‘top’ three:

  • They are often judged negatively when voicing their opinions;
  • they are expected to have good “soft” skills; and 
  • they can be perceived as ‘weaker’ than their male counterparts. 

Annoying, right?!
But did you know that these three stereotypes also have the power to directly influence women’s negotiation skills in their everyday dealings?

Don’t miss this opportunity to join NAWO’s Riverina Committee and hear from Julia Puntoriero, an experienced Mediator and registered Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner, as she steps us through her tips to Negotiate & Influence in a male-dominated business environment. 

Guest Panellists will include:
Paul Foley, HR Manager, DeBortoli Wines
Hayley Parslow, People and Culture Business Partner, SunRice.

Optional tour of the Emeri De Bortoli Gardens (limited places) and networking at the cellar door available after the presentation. 

This is a free event and both women and men are welcome to attend. In fact men who are managing diverse teams, or striving to create more diverse teams, should find it insightful.
