Change Is Coming
When it comes to biology, predetermined bias, stereotypes and a plethora of external factors, we need to control the things we can change and accept the things we can’t. If you apply some of these ideas and ask yourself “what does my look say about me?” Then maybe you will be on your way to creating your own pay gap, in favour of yourself.
We’re not suggesting that what you wear and who does your hair is in any way a substitute for showing up and delivering value to your organisation. What we do believe is that, with a few minor tweaks to your wardrobe and the conversation with your hairstylist, you can greatly improve the odds of success in your favour.
The best most suitable candidate will be chosen, but who is doing the choosing? A human being who scrolls social media, who reads magazines and who no doubt has an opinion about you following that initial 7 second encounter.
So, don’t leave anything to chance, and don’t leave money on the table. Dress to impress, you have every right to be here and you are taking no prisoners. You are more than capable and well and truly qualified for the position.
That’s your promotion girl, let’s get at it!
