If it's a Women's World, Where's My Raise?
I'm late to the 'end of men' party. No one in my twitter, facebook, linkedin or blog networks alerted me to the July/August Atlantic cover article announcing the news with a question mark:
What if modern, postindustrial society is simply better suited to women?
I knew the recession (mancession) had hit the "overwhelmingly male" fields of construction, manufacturing and high finance far worse than any others. But I was more than a little surprised to read that:
"...while female CEO's may be rare in America's largest companies . . . last year they outearned their male counterparts by 43 percent, on average, and received bigger raises."
Forty-three percent? Judy Martin, in town to give She Negotiates the media message make-over it so badly needs, gasps I don't believe it as we sit at our laptops to my guy's vast Labor Day irritation (he went to the gym; we'll put him to work at the Bar-b-Q soon). /1
If you're eager to reverse the wage gap and realize that the floor you're standing on used to be a ceiling made of glass, now's the time to take the negotiation class tailored for the new titanesses of industry.
That's you girlfriend!
September 13 couldn't be coming soon enough.
Our virtual online coached negotiation class is filling up fast. Don't be left out of the revolution.
1/ It's an "outlier" statistic - comparing the salaries of the women CEO's (all 16 of them) at the helm of the S&P 500 to their 484 male counterparts.
