Women's Network of Northeast Ohio - We Connect. We Empower. We Inspire.

Women’s Network of Northeast Ohio - a local, grassroots, non-profit organization based in Akron - focuses on the professional and core leadership development of women professionals. We are dedicated to helping women grow their skill-set through either learning new skills at our workshops or meetings, or by taking a leadership position on a committee within the organization.

Women's Network members are committed to improving the companies and organizations that we work in and the communities in which we live.

Women's Network Book Club
February 2015

by Robert Fisher, William Ury & Bruce Patton

Since its original publication nearly thirty years ago, Getting to Yes has helped millions of people learn a better way to negotiate. One of the primary business texts of the modern era, it is based on the work of the Harvard Negotiation Project, a group that deals with all levels of negotiation and conflict resolution.

Getting to Yes offers a proven, step-by-step strategy for coming to mutually acceptable agreements in every sort of conflict. Thoroughly updated and revised, it offers readers a straight-forward, universally applicable method for negotiating personal and professional disputes without getting angry-or getting taken.
