This talk will be about how I created an organization and community of more than 8,000 women from all over the world who come together online and in person to try to solve their challenges at work. I’m currently traveling the country hosting town halls for hundreds of women to talk about money and it’s been incredible to watch people share things that are so personal in such a public space.

I’d love to tell the Ladies Get Paid story how we went from one town hall in New York to an army of over 100 ambassadors in 30 cities who now host events on their own. We have women in our community from all 50 states and more than 50 countries and I’ve learned a lot from connecting people through shared struggles, fostering an inclusive community where women lift each other up and make speaking up about struggles, the norm and not the taboo.”

Claire Wasserman is the founder of Ladies Get Paid, a career development organization and community that helps women rise up at work and get paid what they deserve. Prior to that, she was the Director of Marketing at Working Not Working, a curated network of creative professionals. Her experience includes experiential marketing, fundraising, and film producing including a short film she made in Sarajevo, Bosnia that was nominated for a Student Academy Award.
