I published a column earlier this week with Fatima Goss Graves of the National Women’s Law Center on pay secrecy and how it perpetuates unequal pay in the workplace.  Women earn 77 cents on the dollar in part because a majority of private workplaces in America prohibit employees from discussing their compensation.  “Leaning in” and inquiring about pay can cost a female worker her job.  The piece was published at CNN.
