Fellows in Rare Book School's Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship for Diversity, Inclusion & Cultural Heritage present "Money Matters in Archives and Special Collections," a two-part, virtual workshop series on salary negotiation and managing budgets.

The workshops are open to all but will be aimed at BIPOC library & archives professionals and students, providing them with tools to navigate financial management in their institutions and to advocate for themselves & their collections. Attendees will be entered into a raffle to win $50 gift cards to Bookshop.org.

In this workshop, Monica Figueroa will give attendees tools and tips to successfully navigate salary negotiation. With an emphasis on self-reflection and self-advocacy, Monica will offer advice on the preparatory work necessary to successfully negotiate salary and approaches as an internal vs. external candidate.

The workshop will consist of a brief presentation with ample time for Q&A and an activity in small breakout groups. Attendees should be prepared to actively participate.

Monica Figueroa (she/her/hers) is Director of Organizational Development and Library Human Resources at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill University Libraries. A native of Ann Arbor, MI, Monica earned her MS in Library and Information Science from Syracuse University in 2014, after having earned an MA in Ethnomusicology from the University of Chicago in 2011 and a Bachelor of Music in Horn Performance from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2006.
