What Ellen Pao Got Wrong (And Right) About Banning Salary Negotiations

Salary NegotiationsFlirting can benefit women in negotiations, according to a study by UC Berkeley Business Professor Laura Kray.

“Feminine charm,” as Kray calls it, is more about using a woman’s natural personality than making sexual come-ons.
