How do you psych yourself up to ask for a raise?
"Think of negotiating as a muscle. The more you flex it, the better you’ll be. Plenty of women have asked the same questions and have been in the same situations. Reach out to a mentor on LinkedIn. Do an Advanced People Search to find a professional woman in your field. Send her an InMail request and ask her to pass along her words of wisdom. You don’t need to divulge numbers and other personal details, but it’s extremely valuable to understand how a current employee was able to successfully negotiate with a company. Was she able to negotiate a signing bonus, salary, flex-working, or vacation? Having someone in your corner will help boost your self-esteem and remove the fear from negotiation."
How do you deal with nerves when you're in conversation?
"Practice, practice, and then practice again! This ask is as much nonverbal as it is verbal, so there might be nonverbal cues like facial expressions and voice intonation that you’re communicating because of your comfort level. These nuances will let your boss know you’re uncomfortable, and that’s going to work against you if you don’t practice beforehand. Be prepared and confident, and your poise will shine through!"
What's the next step in solving the larger issue of income disparity?
"We keep the conversation going. Strike up a discussion in a professional group, and share articles that highlight this issue. Offer to speak on a panel for students graduating from your alma mater. Recent graduates can always benefit from learning the art of negotiating. Acting as a mentor will help you become more confident in return. The more we talk and educate people, the more well-versed professionals we will be going forward."
