Women & Wealth: 6 Negotiations Tips from Marcia Davies
Mar 31, 2021
To wrap up our 2021 Women & Wealth series in celebration of Women’s History Month, we created a downloadable infographic to remind the women in our networks about the best ways to negotiate!
We interviewed several women whose experiences span different generations, backgrounds, ethnicities, socio-economic classes, and careers, and asked them to tell their stories of financial literacy.
Our goal? To empower all women to become confident in their finances. We believe that homeownership is the foundation of wealth and that home lenders—who hold the key to this achievement—play a crucial role in helping women attain financial independence.
The wage gap is real—women in America make only$0.81 for every $1.00 a man makes. And while this glaring inequity is well-known, the unfortunate reality is that many women don’t understand what they’reactuallyworth. Worse yet, some women do understand their intrinsic worth and still don’t fight for it.
This data is not positive, but it does present an opportunity. If women are given the tools they need to know who they are, what they’re worth, and how to fight for it, they can start to erase the wage gap.
That’s whatMarcia Daviesbelieves, and she offers the follow strategies for women to build a data-driven approach to salary negotiation.
