Hi there - as a woman who has faced that very thing, I can tell you the best conversation I ever had about why I deserved a raise happened when I went in prepared to speak to my work, my experience, my expertise and unique skill set and finally what was competitive in the market place.
I said with confidence..."I've earned this, how can WE make it happen."
I also kept in my mind that if I believe I'm worth the raise, then I may have to go somewhere else to get it. People can feel your confidence. Own it!
