“Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it” – Maya Angelou
When it comes to career advancement, similar challenges yield very different results for women vs men. Here are a few interesting tidbits:
- Women are more likely to accept a salary for less than they are worth so that they can “prove themselves” first
- Men initiate negotiations four times as much as women at work
- Women are more likely to minimize their talents and wait to be recognized for good work instead of taking credit for their accomplishments
