#5: The Power of Salary Transparency with Cynthia Medina Carson The Power Shift Podcast

    • Careers

Cynthia is the Founder and CEO of Wager. She is a Salary Transparency Maven, Career Coach, and Recruitment Expert. Cynthia started Wager because she saw firsthand how the lack of salary information created information barriers and anxiety in the workplace. Professionals and executives kept asking the same question, “Who can I ask about salaries?” Wager’s mission is to create and advocate for information transparency at all levels of the workplace. 
Prior to her move into the talent field, Cynthia worked as an international relations and policy expert for the Department of Treasury, Homeland Security, and JP Morgan, and served in Peace Corps, Nicaragua. Cynthia is also the Founder of the Cheeky Monkey Club, a networking group for women who hate to network, is a Board member of her hometown’s Girls Inc., and hosts a makerspace in her basement studio. She is a graduate of Georgetown University and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
In this episode, we discuss:
·     Thinking about finding power is to think about the relation to money and the privilege having money creates.
·     The manifestation of sharing in corporate America, a world that pits us against each other.
·     Knowing what your work is worth and owning the power of transparency of asking for compensation.
·     Why it’s important to work through the fear of rejection that many women face in the workplace when asking for what they really deserve.
·     How to be in your power via your mentality of moving up through life.
I hope you will find this episode as exciting and informative as I have.
