Today’s conversation is a nuanced one – we’re talking all about women making more. Gender power dynamics at work, how are women perceived in the workforce, negotiating for more… these are the topics I discuss with the founder of Ladies Get Paid and Author of the new book by the same name, Claire Wasserman.
How have things shifted after the Pandemic for women in the workforce? Are we making strides, and is there backslash? Today’s conversation shows the positive and the negative – while much has shifted, there’s still work to be done and if there’s one thing we should be doing to make strides faster is speaking about money much more openly with others. And Claire’s work, the origins of Ladies Get Paid, began just with that premise. We’ve got to talk about this, the silence is not good for anyone, especially not us ladies.
How did her Jewish upbringing influence her work? What did she learn about money from her family of origin? Some of her financial failures and wins… We talk honestly about privilege and a lot of the nuances that are part of the conversation on wealth building for women.
