10 REASONS TO NEGOTIATE A JOB OFFER OR SALARY RIGHT NOW
Maternity leave is essential. As a matter of fact, parental leave is essential. It’s not a luxury or a nice to have, it’s a necessity. In order for us as parents to raise a generation of children who become adults who are present, considerate, and change agents for a better society, we ourselves have to be present, mindful, and taken care of in order to care for those we love. Unfortunately, the US is still at the bottom of the list when it comes to paid parental leave benefits and there is evidence of paid-leave disparities by race and ethnicity. In 2020, US employers and the US government are failing to offer equitable and sufficient family leave benefits. Most of us are left to struggle on our own as we navigate parenthood, our careers, and our health. If we’re going to move the needle on current leave programs and policies it’s important to advocate for ourselves, our families, and our colleagues in order to hold our employers accountable to change.
Getting to choose who I work with is one of the many benefits of having my own business. This choice is an honor and it’s also a privilege. I would not have the life or business I have today if it wasn’t for the support of others. No one rises alone. Having access to money gives us options, choices, and the power to change our lives and the lives of others. We need to invest financially in making Black Lives Matter because Black women are worthy women.
So, today I want to highlight and amplify the voices of experts I rely on regularly who are also women of color.
These women may be behind the scenes to you, but they are integral to the success of Own Your Worth and I wouldn’t be here without them. They are worthy of being recognized front and center!
If you’ve done your homework and you’re ready to be paid fairly for your contribution, it always starts with your “ask”. Depending on the review cycle, budget approval process, and current circumstances within your organization, it may take a couple of months to see a raise, but setting the stage and getting your bosses buy in at your annual review is as good of a time as any to start the conversation. It’s important you know what you’re up against, your bosses perspective, and how long you may potentially have to wait.
