Things we talk about in the episode:
- The importance of breaking down the “woman” identity and having conversations about experiences of Black women, gay women, Hindu women, etc. in our organizations.
- What women supporting women mean in today’s corporate environment and examples of how women can make change in their organization and pick their area of change within their spaces (hint: we don’t have to and can’t do it all!)
- The importance of being the CEO of your career and who should be on your personal board of directors.
I hope you enjoy our conversation!
