More About Lauren + DevelopHer

From women just starting out in the tech industry to C-level execs, Lauren’s passion for helping others like herself take ownership of their careers and invest in themselves to get ahead, stand out, and earn more is truly inspiring. After sharing her own first-hand accounts of disappointments, key learnings, and how she eventually became a top, valuable woman in tech herself, her audiences emerge feeling empowered, informed, and inspired to take action in their own careers!

“Lauren brought the right balance of inspirational content and superb delivery in her talk to Google’s Women Tech Makers. She left our attendees motivated and armed with the right tools to tackle future negotiations with a framework built for success”

Naveen Nigam

“The attendees at the Armor Women’s Network could not stop talking about Lauren’s presentation, and left ready to take a new look at how they are approaching career growth and personal motivation. Her story is an inspiration, of course, but her call to action really set our group in motion.”

DevelopHer Keynotes

Learn to Build Your Value + Become an Asset at Work

Great for in-house women in tech, leadership development,
and diversity & inclusion events.

Far too many of our nation’s best and brightest tech women work as hard as they can to advance their careers without really understanding how important it is to build their value and communicate their worth. It’s time to teach women how to work smarter, not harder, to become more effective and invaluable to the companies they work with. Lauren shares her personal story of going from zero network, zero skills, and no job prospects to becoming a highly valued, top engineer with global connections in just three short years. Women will come away with steps they can take to immediately start building their value and become indispensable at work and in their tech careers.

Learn the Secrets to Make More $ in Your Tech Career

Great Opening or Closing Keynote to Empower,
Inform, and Inspire Your Audience

As tech women, salary negotiation is an essential skill, but negotiating isn’t always so easy. Imposter syndrome, fear, and unconscious bias are real adversaries that can get in your way to a successful negotiation and earning what you deserve. The good news is that negotiation is a skill that can be learned. DevelopHer’s founder, Lauren Hasson shares how she tripled her base salary in less than two years by grounding herself in data and asking critical questions to uncover key leverage points and ultimately learned to negotiate with confidence. Attendees learn actionable steps they can take themselves to not only uncover their true market value, but also negotiate for the salary they deserve.

“Lauren knocked it out of the park! She delivered one of the most talked-about and highest-rated sessions for our Women in Tech Summits. Her presentation and personal story is highly motivational and inspirational for all in the audience, with many survey comments stating how relevant and timely her content was for them personally. Her style is engaging and thought-provoking. She is an obvious choice to present to any audience and we have already contacted her for future speaking engagements with our audiences.”

Sean Lowery
Executive Director, InnoTech and Women in Tech Summit

Real Women. Real Impact.

“Lauren’s talk was by far the most inspirational session of the conference. Her message was empowering and timely. She has no idea how many lives she has just touched!”

Senior Program Manager

“It was really informative and inspiring to have a woman who has done it both break it down into really digestible steps that you should do when you’re approaching negotiation.”

Tech Recruiter

“To hear her story is super empowering! If an engineer can get up in front of a room of people and speak much less triple her salary like she’s done, that’s a huge accomplishment!

“Lauren consistently packs the room! Her talks really draw a crowd and are positive, forward-looking, and actionable. She’s incredibly engaging and a consummate professional whose insights have been invaluable to our audience of women in tech. We booked her for all five of our 2018 summits and are already in discussions with her for our 2019 events!”

Gloria Bell
Co-Founder, Women in Tech Summits

“Lauren’s strategies don’t just change attitudes, they changes lives! She shares her command of negotiating skills so concisely, that her recipe for success can be immediately implemented by anyone, regardless of what stage of your career you are in. Lauren connects with audiences because she doesn’t lecture, she engages. She empowers us to dig deep within ourselves to recognize exactly we want for our future, and to own that future.”

Dr. Karen Panetta
Dean of Graduate Engineering, Tufts University
