Where are you located?

Maybe explain to her the research on the memo and why it’s crucial that she understands it. Also maybe go over it with her a few times so she gets the hang of what you want. It takes a big first step to admitting that you’re intimidated by something. Taking the extra step to help her would probably help all parties involved. The more concerning thing, from the little info I have, is that she’s intimidated and not comfortable going to you about it. That’s gotta get corrected

Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?
