It seems that a chatbot was launched to help women ask for a raise on “Equal Pay Day” in Facebook Messenger. The bot is based on the somewhat raucus Cindy Gallop.Embed from Getty Images
The bot is found at @AskCindyGallop within the Messenger App.
It’s clever and easy to use. While I don’t think that Cindy’s attitude toward “getting paid” is right for all of us, the sentiment is right. It walks you through all the steps you need to understand what you should be making (using salary data for your zipcode) and providing rationale for why you’re asking. It also links out to partners The Muse, Ladies Get Paid, Reply.ai and PayScale for follow up information.
Worth checking out.
