On Saturday, March 5, 2016 I had the privilege of attending the first annual Women in Medicine and the Sciences Symposium presented by the UB Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.  Entitled “Women and the Power of Negotiation” the event, described as a “morning of networking, information and support for female physicians, scientists, faculty, residents and students”, focused on the power of negotiation not just in the workplace but in every aspect of life.  The keynote speaker, the panelists and the moderator shared information that was empowering, practical and pertinent for all women no matter what their career path.
