I’m really lucky. I work with inspiring women leaders and empower them to create high-paying, fulfilling careers. Many of the women I serve share with me that they work too hard, are passed over for roles that they deserve to have, they do not make the money that their male peers make and their contributions are not acknowledged.
Unfortunately, this is a well-documented epidemic, where on average, women have to work over 70 additional days per year than men to earn the same income, and often for the same roles.
Of course, there is systemic sexism to address, retraining male leaders to stand for and develop women leaders, and create women-friendly workplaces with transparent raise and promotion frameworks, 40+ weeks of paid maternity leave and flexible work schedules.
But what can you do today to get paid what you are worth?
