Vanst is Sponsoring Two Opportunities to Help You Learn Your Worth

Vanst believes that every attorney must feel empowered to believe they are worthy and understand their worth. Understanding your worth occurs when attorneys know how they are compensated, that compensation formula is fair, and they are paid their value. For women in traditional law firms, too often they advocate for the success of others but not for themselves. This often leads to losing out on years of pay increases, promotions, and professional respect.

When attorneys are taught to advocate for themselves, the possibilities are endless. This belief in self advocacy has led us to partner with Ann marie Houghtailing, one of the most sought-after business development and storytelling experts in the country, to sponsor two San Diego events. These events will help you learn your worth and become your best advocate.

Ann marie has spent the past decade as the confidential advisor to women ranging from business executives, attorneys and even an Olympic gold medal athlete. She coaches professional women to negotiate millions of dollars in salary increases; build million dollar books of businesses; and be empower to be conscious creators of social impact. She believes that salary negotiation is a civic duty and a social responsibility to leave a legacy of equality for future professionals.

I know this because Ann marie taught me to advocate for my own success as an attorney and the CEO of Vanst. Come learn how you can do the same.

The Membership Development Committee of Lawyers Club of San Diego is hosting a happy hour for current and prospective Lawyers Club members. Ann marie will speak on the topic:

“Why Self Advocacy is Vital to Your Success”

Are you great at advocating for others, but not yourself?
Is your attitude of gratitude getting in the way of your professional advancement?
Do you worry that asking for your worth will make you appear greedy or ungrateful?
Are you working hard waiting to be rewarded?

If you’re a great champion of others but struggle to advocate for yourself, this presentation will help you elegantly and ethically ask for what you deserve and stop waiting to be noticed.

This is a free event and food and drink will be provided.

Self Worth + Self Advocacy = Value

April 11, 2019
6 – 8:30 p.m.

Self-advocacy is not selfish, but rather a pathway that helps us create a legacy of equity for those that come after us. The beliefs we consume from our culture inform how we behave and can impact how we manage our careers. This transcends work and pay, it seeps into everything we do, think, approach, and avoid. Learn the skills, words and tangible tactics to make your ask and honor the full truth of who you are and the contributions you make. This interactive presentation will focus on:

  • Beliefs that are impeding your advancement
  • How to ask with elegance
  • Why negotiation can be a form of social activism
  • How to prepare for hard conversations
  • How to be accountable to yourself
