b&b46 How to ask for a Raise as a Woman

When I googled “consequences of not asking for a raise” (go ahead, try it), the first link was an article called, “For women, asking for a raise is damned if you do or don’t.” The first PAGE of the search is littered with similar articles, cautioning women about how asking for a raise changes how people see them. So we had to do a show on it.

What are the things you need to look out for if you’re a woman asking for a raise? How do people perceive you? How do you ask for a raise and keep your reputation in tact? What can you do to change this when you’re in a leadership position? We explore all these questions in this accidental two-parter.
