One thing I've always struggled with is speaking to authority, especially when it comes to superiors at work.
I've talked to a lot of other women who feel the same way, especially when dealing with a male boss.
So I thought I'd open it up to you — what tips have you heard or utilized that helped you advocate for yourself at work?
Did you get some really good advice on negotiating your salary upon first getting hired?
Or how to network within your company and advocate for leadership positions?
Did you have an experience where you knew a male colleague was being paid more, and successfully advocated for a raise?
Or do you just have some tips on how to make yourself heard in meetings where you're often talked over?
Whatever advice you have, we would love to hear it! Tell us what your job/industry is and any of your tips or experiences advocating for yourself in the workplace, and you could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
