Ask, Advocate and Allies
I meet women who are doing “the work” yet they are frustrated due to lack of promotion opportunities and/or inadequate compensation.
•Ask: request a meeting at the appropriate time to discuss your career path and compensation. Show up with your results that align with business objectives and your accomplishments
•Advocate: update your job description to reflect additional responsibilities and give power to your voice. Communicate with confidence on your own behalf.
Allies: attracting sponsors means you’ll need to be visible, you’ll need to have an exceptional reputation and you must exceed performance expectations.
