Want to hear one of the most sexist things that was ever said to me? Get your mugs out, cause I’ve got some tea to spill that inspired these San Francisco Career Photos with a fellow boss babe.
Two years ago, I received an offer for a management level role that I was pretty excited about, but I wanted to negotiate my benefits and salary just a bit. Sounds pretty normal, right? The day I went in to discuss this with my then-boss, he asked me: “So, did your dad or your boyfriend tell you to negotiate your salary?” I’m sad to say that I didn’t stand up for myself, and I endured three months of constant sexist comments and treatment until I had had enough and left.
That experience changed me. It took me awhile to see it, but I realized that the double standards are VERY REAL. If I had been a man, do you think my boss would have asked me if my mom or girlfriend told me to negotiate? Probably not. Since then, this fire has been growing inside me. A fire burning to elevate and empower women to be strong, confident and self-assured. Female is not a weakness. Femininity is not a burden. It’s beautiful. And powerful. It’s an advantage.
That’s why I absolutely HAD to work with Erin for her San Francisco career photos. This woman is fierce and talented, and I believe she is destined for amazing things.
Erin, you are so incredible and powerful. Your dreams and your desires are at your fingertips. And I pray that these photos and your new resume not only help you make your next career move, but also show you just how confident, beautiful and talented you are. I want you to believe it! Can’t wait to see where you go next.
