A great, insightful and really amusing talk by Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s COO about women in the workplace. One of many great statistics cited in her talk: “57% of men negotiate their first salary out of college, while only 7% of women do the same.”
To any of you young professional ladies out there, the first thing you should do is learn how to negotiate. Never be afraid to negotiate, go high, get what you deserve and know your self worth. No one teaches you this - no one taught me and I wish someone did, it’s one of the most valuable things you can do for yourself.
