Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg: ‘Pay women well’
However, the chief operating officer of the company, in an interview for the records of the desert of BBC Radio 4, said that the first step is “start to pay women well.”
She chose Beyonce to feed the world (the girls) as the first song.
She said: “We are beginning to tell the girls not to carry a very young age and start telling the boys [to] drive at a very young age, it is a mistake ..”
“I think everyone has within them the ability to lead and we must let people choose those who are not based on gender, but for what they are and want to be.”
In an emotional interview, Sandberg also talked about her husband’s sudden death in 2015 and the effect on her two young children.
Sandberg has made headlines in 2013 with her book “Lean in” on empowering women in the workplace.
It became a worldwide sales success, but was criticized by some for being elitist and impractical for many women who are not in their prime position.
“We need a policy”
In the interview, he called for more to reduce the pay gap between men and women.
Sandberg admitted that he had problems with the doubt at Harvard and acknowledged that women more than men underestimate their own value, which prevents them from putting in or asking for a raise.
“We have to start paying women well and we need public and business policy to make this happen,” he said.
“Certainly, women who seek employment at the same rate as men, women who work in the office in the same proportion as men, should be part of the answer.”
After the sudden death of her husband Dave Goldberg, Sandberg has described a “different” person now.
He found the floor of a gym with a head injury after suffering a heart attack while on weekends.
Sometimes in tears she said: “I’m sad I did not know anyone could cry because I asked my sister – she’s a doctor – and said that most of her body was .. water,” he joked.
Means legend. I felt as if I had entered a void, as if I could barely breathe – Sheryl Sandberg
She chooses one by U2 record as if she kept the other seven were deleted because Mr. Goldberg had loved the group, adding that her music was very important: her husband was the founder of the online music site Media presentation.
Another of her eight tracks was Queen You are my best friend tribute to your intimate group of friends that she helped accompany to overcome the experience.
The play was a “lifesaver”
Since his death, Sandberg said he had become more empathic and Facebook doubled the amount of time that Facebook employees can take off when a member of the immediate family dies after 20 days.
She said it was also important to support people and build their confidence if they wanted to go to work.
