It’s possible you never thought that women needed their own career coach. It’s possible that you’re paid the exact same as your male coworkers. It’s possible you’ve never been passed over for a promotion because it “wasn’t your time” only to see a newer, less experienced guy move up the ladder. It’s possible you’ve never walked into a room of male colleagues and had them stop talking.
But probably not.
If you’re a man, it’s assumed that you want to advance at work. As a woman, you have to prove it.
Women are offered an average of 30% less than a man for the EXACT same job. Women earn an average of $.77 per dollar of what a man earns – and women of color earn even less.
Think you’ll just work harder and make up for the initial wage gap? You won’t. Salaries don’t become fairer as we get older. By the time women reach age 45, they make even less—an average of $.57 for every dollar earned by a man.
This is why as a woman who wants to advance, you can’t simply “wait and see.” You need to know yourself, your pitch, your value…and what you’re up against.
Top salaries and corner offices don’t go to those without a strategy.
At Kristen Knepper Consulting, we know the reality of being a woman in a male dominated industry. We understand the pushback, the conflicting messages, and more importantly, the solutions to get you from where you are to where you want to be. We understand “the why” behind the wage gap and the glass ceiling. We’ve studied every aspect: neuroscience, socialization, and subconscious bias data. But more than that, we’ve tested and applied these techniques in order to create the BEST preparation for women to interview and negotiate the salary they deserve.
Whether you are transitioning jobs, reentering the workforce, seeking a raise, or working towards a promotion, at Kristen Knepper Consulting, we make your goal your reality.
