About the PayDestiny Podcast

The PayDestiny Podcast is dedicated to ensuring Latinas, women, and underrepresented professionals are: 1.) competitively paid, and 2.) represented in leadership positions.

Each episode interviews a Latina/Latino/Latinx employee, decision maker, or business owner who shares insights on how they overcame challenges to increase their pay, get promoted, and reach career goals, and/or how they make compensation and promotion decisions.

Each guest participates in a game of situational instinct where they are provided a series of workplace scenarios and have to share how they would handle each situation to ensure their career growth and goals are not hindered before a timer runs out.

Through the lived experiences of Latinas, Latinos, and Latinx professionals listeners can learn how to navigate and overcome challenges to career and pay growth.
