Episode notes

Stefanie O’Connell Rodriguez is the host of Real Simple magazine’s ‘Money Confidential’ podcast, the founder of Statement Cards, and the co-founder of Statement Event. Stefanie is sharing how women are ultimately being blamed for the gender pay gap. Women are told to “always negotiate” and “speak up more” to close gender gaps. But when they do, they face consequences for being too ambitious. 

In today’s episode, Stefanie shares real life examples of these penalties that women face as well as how women and men are perceived differently when trying to move up in the workplace. She also gives steps for how to move forward from this structural bias.
