As women, conversations about money have been hiding behind closed doors. This conversation with host Natalie Benamou and Claire Wasserman opens the door and shows you how to start talking about money and knowing your worth.
Claire recommends getting the conversations started:
What’s your salary range? If you work for an agency-ask about the value or your contribution to the company. For example, ask how much was the campaign worth they signed for? Include your contribution value when negotiating your salary
Hiding from conversations about money; it’s a disservice to yourself and everyone Questioning your work and your value Equating self-worth to net-worth
Being a self-advocate Thinking big Combining activism with doing well for yourself and other women
Thank you, Claire Wasserman, for this conversation, your advocacy and for opening the doors to talking about money in a way to help women achieve gender parity.
