“I want us to eventually be a strong network of peers and leaders in our fields. I want our reputation to be that we lift each other up (and all people, regardless of if they're DDCSP alums or not), always have each other's backs and we're all really good at what we do." ~Dyaami D'Orazio DDCSP UW Alumni

From Our Blog

Defining our value requires us to explore our deeply held personal messages, ideas, and attitudes about ourselves and our relationship to money and/or salary. The act of asking for (more) money and/or (more/other) benefits, or crafting a personal value statement supported by accomplishments, skills/experience, and impact is complex enough. We owe it to ourselves to take time in finding and providing context and language that may help dismantle personally limiting beliefs and support us in asking for and demonstrating fair market value.
