  微软CEO萨蒂亚·纳德拉(Satya Nadella)10月10日在一个行业峰会上表示,科技行业的女性不应该要求涨薪,而是应该相信这套体制最终会为她们提供合适的薪酬。

  这次行业峰会是女性计算科学系列会议,在现场,纳德拉被微软公司的一名女性董事玛利亚·卡拉威(Maria Klawe)问道:女性如何在科技行业取得成功? 他答道:“问题的关键真的不是在于要求涨薪,而是要了解和相信,随着你的成长,系统实际上会给予你合理的加薪。”

  玛利亚·卡拉威当即对纳德拉的表态予以反驳:“这一观点是我不能赞同你的极少数事情之一。”她的话引发了台下少数观众的叫好。玛利亚·卡拉威是微软董事,也是哈维穆德学院主席。

  当晚,纳德拉在推特上解释了自己的言论,然后给微软公司全体员工发邮件,为自己的言论道歉。

  发推特解释 并给全体员工发邮件:这个问题我完全错了

  纳德拉1967年出生在印度,在印度获得电子和通信的工程学士学位,随后前往美国,在威斯康辛大学攻读计算机硕士,后在芝加哥大学攻读MBA。他于1992年加入微软。今年2月,被任命为CEO。在微软内部,他一直是以谦逊、温和著名。而此番发言招致了大量批评。

  纳德拉接着称:“这是一种因果回报。相信这种制度的人才是我能够信任并值得委以重任的员工。”当天晚些时候,他在Twitter上解释道:“在对于女性要求涨薪的问题上我的确不善辞令,我们的行业必须缩小性别的薪酬差异,这样女性将不会再为偏见而要求加薪。”

  有资料显示,微软的女性员工比例约为29%。据《卫报》报道,当晚,纳德拉紧急给微软公司全体员发邮件,为自己的言论道歉:“这个问题我完全回答错了”。他还称,“我认为男性与女性做同等工作应该获得同样的收入,当你认为你的付出应得到更高回报时,玛利亚的建议是对的。如果你认为你应该加薪,你就应该提出来。”

  有分析认为,纳德拉的言论反映了一些管理人员对行业内女员工的问题充耳不闻。尽管他们经常吹捧自己具有前瞻性思维,但高新科技业在很大程度上还是男性的世界,纳德拉要求女性相信的所谓的“体制”,但这种“体制”实际上并不青睐女员工。

  还有研究表明,2011年至2013年期间,在6793家获得风险投资的公司中,少于3%的公司是由女性领导的。

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to Women: Don't Ask For A Raise, Trust Karma
This is not good advice.

原文 http://readwrite.com/2014/10/09/nadella-women-dont-ask-for-raise

Proffering career advice more analogous to The Secret than Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In: Women Work, and the Will to Lead, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told women in the tech industry that asking for what you're worth isn't the best way to get ahead.

“It’s not really about asking for a raise, but knowing and having faith that the system will give you the right raise,” Nadella told a confounded (and predominantly female) audience at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing on Thursday. [Update: Nadella clarified his remarks on Twitter, and then issued a statement apologizing. He'll also return to speak at the Hopper conference again next year. See below.]

Ascribing to mortals the fictional abilities of comic book heroes, Nadella advised that women embrace their innate "super powers" and confidence, and trust a system that pays women 78% as much as men.

Nadella made the comments in an on-stage conversation with Maria Klawe, a computer scientist, president of Harvey Mudd College, and member of Microsoft's board of directors. He seemed to suggest that "faith in the system" is akin to magic.

"That might be one of the initial 'super powers,' that quite frankly, women (who) don’t ask for a raise have," he told the straight-faced Klawe. "It’s good karma. It will come back.”

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said women working in the technology industry should not ask for raises and instead have faith in karma.

His statement made at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing generated a firestorm online.

Mr Nadella later apologised, saying he was "inarticulate".

Harvey Mudd College president Maria Klawe attended the conference who said she was "surprised" by his comments.

She said: "I was somewhat surprised by his response...I wanted to politely disagree.

 "I just pushed back with an anecdote about when I hadn't done my homework and really known what I should ask for and accepted a lower salary than I think I deserved at the time.

"I think it's really important that we encourage CEOs and male executives to take this on as their issue, not just the issue for people like me who have been the first woman in their job for 26 years."

②Nadella's Karmagate howler was response to MICROSOFT BOARD DIRECTOR – report
Firm to take hard look at pay culture, says Maria Klawe

原文 http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/10/13/microsoft_women_equal_pay_investigation/

Satya Nadalla’s Karmagate will spark an examination at the highest levels within Microsoft of women’s pay and its corporate culture.

That’s according to computer scientist Maria Klawe, the person whose softball questioning of Microsoft’s CEO at a women-in-tech event saw Nadella land himself in hot water last week.

Klawe is reported to have told Reuters that pay practices and attitudes to women are “still open to question” at the software giant and that they “will be likely be taken up at the board level".

Klawe joined Microsoft as a board director five years ago and believes the issue of pay rises for women has not been discussed by her senior colleagues.

“I suspect it might be now,” she told Reuters.

She was speaking following the backlash against Nadella following the comments he made at a women in tech event hosted by Klawe last week.

At the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing last week, Klawe asked Nadella to give his advice for women uncomfortable asking for pay rises.

“That might be one of the initial ‘super powers,’ that quite frankly women [who] don’t ask for a raise have,” came the jaw-dropping reply. “It’s good karma. It will come back.”

He said women should have faith in the system to see them right.

Nadella afterwards proceeded to backtrack on Twitter and via PR, saying he’d been “inarticulate” while also championing work to close the gender pay gap.

But Klawe, a former dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton, wasn’t buying it in her conversation with Reuters. “He blew that question," she told the wire. "He's retracted it. I think it's going to take us all to a better place. I'm pretty sure he's going to be thinking really hard about pay equity."

Klawe, a long-time campaigner for women in tech - is one of three women on Microsoft’s 12-person board of directors. The others are Kraft Foods Group chief financial officer Teri List-Stoll, who was appointed in September and took her seat at the start of this month and Dina Dublon – who is also on the boards of PepsiCo and Accenture and is the former chief financial officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co.

It was Klawe, currently the president of the liberal Harvey Mudd College, who personally persuaded Nadella to attend her institution’s Grace Hopper event last week. He is the first man to headline the annual event, which celebrates women's achievement in computing.
