Claire Wasserman Rebelling FOR Ladies Getting Paid

Claire Wasserman Rebelling FOR Ladies Getting Paid

Claire Wasserman is an educator, author, and founder of Ladies Get Paid, a global community and educational platform that champions the professional and financial advancement of women. She is also the producer and host of John Hancock’s podcast, “Friends Who Talk About Money”. Claire has traveled the country teaching thousands of women how to negotiate millions of dollars in raises, start businesses, and advocate for themselves in the workplace. Claire was named one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s 100 Most Powerful Women and is a highly-sought-after expert for Fortune 500 companies working to improve diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging within their organizations. She’s spoken at places such as Facebook, Harvard, and the United Nations Foundation, as well as partnerships with Nike, Indeed, and the City of Los Angeles, among others. 

Claire joins me today to discuss practical steps women can take to get paid what they deserve and promote systemic change. We talk about overcoming imposter syndrome by thinking selfishly and why perfectionism is never worth all the consequences it brings. Claire gives advice on how to work through salary negotiations, and why it’s still appropriate to ask for a raise during a pandemic. Claire also talks about her relationship with a well-known congresswoman and uses her experience to justify why you should never be afraid to pursue your wildest dreams. 

“You can assume the best about companies- that they are trying to be fair. We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. Does that mean you accept what they offer? No!” – Claire Wasserman
