How To Negotiate Your Worth

A Step-By-Step Guide By Bonnie Low-Kramen

95-98% of assistants are female. It’s no secret that women in this profession are highly underpaid. Therefore, we’ve teamed up with Bonnie Low-Kramen, workplace expert, to address the wage gap. Low-Kramen is the former Personal Assistant to Oscar winner Olympia Dukakis. In 2015, she was named Educator of the Year by the Domestic Estate Managers Association. She’s the author of the bestseller, Be the Ultimate Assistant. “Too many women around the world are seriously underpaid,” explains Low-Kramen, “One reason is that they have no idea what their jobs are worth.

Today, it is time we shine a light on this topic. It’s time we not just bring truth to the situation at hand, and make tangible changes for our financial futures.
