Professional women who are looking for a new job, preparing for their annual performance review, or gearing up to ask for a raise can now download the innovative iPhone and iPad app “Earn More Girl Pro,” and instantly see what they should truly be earning -- and not what they might be offered due to gender pay gap.
Created by salary negotiation teacher, coach, blogger and speaker Katie Donovan, Earn More Girl Pro lets professional women enter their target salary, and then select a specific job from the same categories used by the US Dept. of Labor. In total, there are 135 jobs in the app’s database, and a default option for those who are unsure of the right option.
Once a job is selected, Earn More Girl Pro uses the gender pay gap for the occupation, and the breakdown of men and women who work in that job, to calculate the true target salary -- which is the amount that professional women should be aiming for if they’re looking for a job, or asking for if they’re due – or overdue -- for a raise. Plus, professional women can use the app to immediately calculate their own personal pay gap, which is the amount that they would be earning right now if they were male.
“Research shows that women typically estimate the value of a salary lower than men, and the difference can be a much as 30%,” commented Katie Donovan, who recently launched a new no-risk 360-degree salary negotiation coaching program for professional women. “And salary research sites provide salary ranges and distribution based on the incomes of both men and women, which makes it impossible to determine gender pay gap, and as such displays a target salary that is too low for professional women. Earn More Girl Pro simply and elegantly corrects this flaw. Now, professional women can easily and instantly get the salary research they need to earn what they truly deserve.”
“Since meeting Katie at the Boston Women’s Conference, where I offered PR advice and guidance to entrepreneurs and professionals from a variety of fields, I knew that her innovative app Earn More Girl Pro was a must-have tool for professional women,” commented Donovan’s public relations and promotions partner, Robin Samora, Principal of Robin Samora Inc. “I also knew that Katie’s mission to empower professional women with the coaching, tools and information they need to earn what they deserve was something I wanted my firm to support. In the bigger picture, the gender pay gap serves nobody. A fair and equitable labor market, where all individuals earn what they deserve regardless of gender, is a win on every level – economically, socially, culturally and politically.”
Earn More Girl Pro is available now for in the App Store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/earn-more-girl-pro/id583002671?ls=1&mt=8. The app requires iOS 5.1 or later, and is optimized for iPhone 5.
