Why Women Earn Less, In Their Own Words
Ester Bloom

I had a 20-something female coworker that led by example and it was so inspiring. She was a brilliantly talented copywriter who knew her worth and she was very transparent with me about the importance of negotiating harder, demanding more. At my next (current) position I hard-balled on salary more than I felt was safe, and it totally paid off. I felt totally uncomfortable doing it, but that discomfort went away when my offer increased by $7000 a year.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
