In this exciting episode, our very special guest is Claire Wasserman. Claire is the founder and author of Ladies Get Paid, an organization that helps women advance professionally and get equal pay. It began at a town hall that she organized as space for women to share their stories, and it’s evolved into a full-fledged company that runs a Slack group home to over 75,000 women in all 50 states and across 120 countries. It’s also the title of her book, a guide that dispenses invaluable advice to women on how to find their freedom, power and value.
Claire started Ladies Get Paid after realizing the depth of the gender pay disparities in the workplace. It was after hosting an event that made her realize two things. One, that she needed to continue bringing women together to talk about this stuff. And two, there was a tangible way that women could at least begin to close the wage gap for themselves. That also included negotiating their salaries. As Claire recalls in the interview, “I don’t think that a lot of women were doing it, because they were nervous, or they weren’t doing it because they didn’t know how, but they didn’t know what to charge or they weren’t doing it. And they were getting a “no” and not knowing what was next. I created a slack group and as I hosted these monthly events, I invited people to join the slack group and it became very clear what kind of education women needed around money and career”.
