Welcome to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for corporate women who want to land dream opportunities in their careers and get that recognition they so deserve.
Salary negotiation fills so many women with dread. Stats tell us that only 47% of women have ever negotiated their salary...
That's pretty stark...
Which is why I find it imperative that we tool-up and learn the skills of easy salary negotiation.
Yes, we live in a society that still accepts practices of bias and yes, women are still underpaid compared to their male counterparts.
I think it is ridiculous that progress is so slow...
And we can push back against that, raise awareness of the issue and even vote with our feet if we feel our corporate culture is unsupportive... or even damaging to our professional progress.
I also believe deeply in taking responsibility for the factors you absolutely can have control of... which is learning skills (whether you're a woman or man!) to improve your ability to negotiate your salary on your own behalf.
These skills are hugely important... so let's talk about it in today's episode!
Also, at my company Illuminate Personal Growth, we run a free, live and online workshop, Easy Salary Negotiation... to help corporate women like you learn the steps to confidently ask for your biggest pay rise yet! The link to read more is below!
Here's something interesting I said in this ep! :)
"Don't leave thinking about your pay rise conversation to the last second. It's a costly mistake. Be proactive in your career about thinking about and chasing down the opportunities - and pay - you want and deserve." (Rebecca Allen, Career Success Coach and host of Her Ambitious Career podcast)
