1. Find out what people doing your job are worth

2. Take the time to become comfortable with the idea that you are worth just as much as your male counterparts

3.Even if you are happy in your current role, interview somewhere else at least once a year

4. Find out how valuable you are at your company

5. If you are talking with a recruiter at another company, don’t disclose your salary before hearing what they are willing to offer you

6. If you have children, don’t assume it’s time to take a step down or go part-time

7. Talk to your manager about compensation openly
