Claire Wasserman is the incredibly brave woman behind Ladies Get Paid - an organization that provides the tools, resources, and a community to help women negotiate for equal pay and power in the workplace. Their mission - help ladies get paid! Asking for a raise and negotiating benefits at work can be a terrifying experience for anyone - and for women, who’ve been raised to accept what they’re told and stay in their lane, it’s actually creating a real problem: the gender pay gap (and leadership gap!). Did you know that 60% of today's college graduates are women, yet less than 22% make it past middle management? Tune in to the Brave, Not Perfect podcast for a conversation with Reshma and Claire about bravery, sexism, and getting paid.
