Part of what our father taught us was how to resist growing up. This is what I try to do at work, insisting that Redfin is still growing up too; what after all is a startup if not a sustained, collective delusion?
To narrow the gender gap, some employers are releasing data on how we pay employees. Redfin has now reached a size where we have a meaningful number of employees in similar roles, and so today we are releasing data on the relative pay of women and men at our company.
What happens when one company after another raises private capital at a multi-billion dollar valuation? No one in Silicon Valley really knows, though we ask ourselves that question every day.
