We’ve taken the proverbial three steps forward and two steps back recently, when it comes to women’s advancement.
Women have made great strides in the private sector, including being CEO of four top Fortune 500 STEM-related companies: Ginny Rometty at IBM, Mary Barra at General Motors, Marillyn Hewson at Lockheed Martin, and Ursula Burns at Xerox.
Yet, most women are still stuck in middle management quicksand and looking for answers on how to advance their careers. It’s about managing our choices big and small, and managing moments, time and priorities.
To help us wrestle these issues – especially for International Women’s Day! – is Ashley Milne-Tyte whose voice may sound familiar when you listen to host Joan Michelson’s fascinating and witty interview with her. Ashley is an established broadcast journalist who has been reporting for “Marketplace” and the BBC and others for years. Ashley recently launched her own podcast “about women, the workplace and success,” aptly called, “The Broad Experience.”
You’ll hear Joan and Ashley discuss:
- What “success” really means, especially for women.
- Managing expectations.
- What to trade-off, such as living in an expensive city to be close to opportunities.
- How women generally make decisions.
- Tips for making choices.
