ABOUT WAGER

 

WAGER creates spaces for transparent, informative, and healthy career conversations. We work with individuals, employee groups and companies to bring pertinent, informative and curated content to the workplace. The Pay Gap, work-life balance, diversity in the workforce, and access to salary information are now bare minimums for those entering the workforce. Employees are now sharing and consuming data around subjects that were once considered taboo and are seeking partners in their professional growth. The new workforce is highly motivated to create a better work environment. 

​There is a desire for CONVERSATION, not DICTATION.

We have expertise in the area of salaries, career mobility, DEI empowerment, and all of the hard conversations that often feel taboo. We know from our experience, open conversations and workplace transparency means less tension and higher retention rates. ​WAGER is ready to facilitate, organize, and educate companies and individuals on how to make the journey over to the bright side. ​Reach out. We want to hear from you.

CYNTHIA MEDINA CARSON

Cynthia Medina Carson, CEO Wager is a Salary Transparency Maven, Career Guru, and Organizational Growth Expert and Next Generation Workforce Advocate.

Professionals kept asking the same question, “Who can I talk to about these issues?” Wager advocates for transparency at all levels of the workplace via hard conversations, workshops, and executive training.  

 

Prior to her move into the talent field, Cynthia worked as an international relations and policy expert for the Department of Treasury, Homeland Security, and JP Morgan, and served in Peace Corps, Nicaragua.
