One of the primary reasons we work is to earn money, but many of us feel uncomfortable telling others how much we make. This fear may be working against women, because research has shown that salary transparency can help narrow the gender pay gap.

With the help of experts, we explore the complexities of talking about our salaries. First, an economist walks through the pros and cons of disclosing your pay. Then, the host of a personal finance podcast explains why she encourages people to speak openly about salaries. Finally, an HR executive gives advice on how to deal with the gut punch of learning that a peer makes more than you do.


Zoë B. Cullen is an assistant professor at Harvard Business School.

Gaby Dunn is the host of the podcast Bad with Money and the author of a book by the same name.

Amelia Ransom is the senior director of engagement and diversity for Avalara, the Seattle-based tax software company.
