Is het ‘bad karma’ voor vrouwen om te vragen om een salarisverhoging? CEO Saty Nadella van Microsoft vond dat het geval tijdens een interview op een technologie evenement in Phoenix (VS).
Heel even, en toen niet meer. Toen hij er achter kwam dat de publieke opinie een heel andere kijk heeft op het beloningsverschil tussen mannen en vrouwen, kwam Nadella terug op zijn woorden.
Zie hier het gewraakte interview (begint bij 48:30). Vrouwen kunnen maar het beste vertrouwen op het systeem volgens hem:
“Which is, it’s not really about asking for the raise, but knowing and having faith that the system will actually give you the right raises as you go along. And that, I think, might be one of the additional superpowers that, quite frankly, women who don’t ask for a raise have. Because that’s good karma.”

En hier zijn latere verklaring:

“All – Today I was interviewed on stage by Maria Klawe at the Grace Hopper Conference – I encourage you to watch the video. It was great to spend time with so many women passionate about technology. I was honored to be a part of it and I left the conference energized and inspired.
Toward the end of the interview, Maria asked me what advice I would offer women who are not comfortable asking for pay raises. I answered that question completely wrong. Without a doubt I wholeheartedly support programs at Microsoft and in the industry that bring more women into technology and close the pay gap. I believe men and women should get equal pay for equal work. And when it comes to career advice on getting a raise when you think it’s deserved, Maria’s advice was the right advice. If you think you deserve a raise, you should just ask.
I said I was looking forward to the Grace Hopper Conference to learn, and I certainly learned a valuable lesson. I look forward to speaking with you at our monthly Q&A next week and am happy to answer any question you have. Satya”

Nadella werd geboren in Hyderabad, India. Hij studeerde in India en de Verenigde Staten voor hij in diensttrad van Microsoft in 1992.
