While being interviewed onstage at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Nadella says women should not ask for raises, but will receive them via karma.
It’s not really about asking for a raise, but knowing and having faith that the system will give you the right raise. That might be one of the initial ‘super powers’ that, quite frankly, women (who) don’t ask for a raise have. It’s good karma. It will come back.
