Session 8 with Laurie Davis, Human Resources Manager, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum 

What we'll be discussing:
Launching a diversity initiative - getting buy-in from the top
Lunch & Learn sessions and empowering group learning
Salary & job offer negotiations in the era of "lean in" and millenials

This session is part of a two-part special on female empowerment in the workplace, where we reflect on the beginning of the Times Up movement, while developing professional skills and language targeted at providing equality and leadership for women in the visual arts. The first part, Drawing Lines, Navigating Gray Areas and Structuring Workplace Culture: HR Development was led by Sheila McDaniel, deputy director of finance & operations, The Studio Museum in Harlem.

Laurie Davis manages recruitment efforts at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum & Foundation, sourcing talent at all levels for diverse departments across the institution. She also coordinates training & development programs and most recently is spearheading a new, multi-year diversity initiative at the museum. Prior to the Guggenheim, Laurie was Managing Director of Recruitment at Teach for America, where she oversaw a team of six focused on recruiting talent from elite college institutions in the Northeast. Before her time in HR, Laurie worked for a decade in Higher Education as a career counselor, working at public and private colleges & universities with undergraduates, graduate students and alumni.  She launched her earlier career in the corporate arena, working in global production and sourcing for the Gap, inc. in San Francisco and New York City. She holds a Master's in Counseling from NYU and a Bachelor's in History, summa cum laude, from Duke University. Laurie resides in New Jersey with her husband and two children.
