Why Women. Why Encourage Men to Advocate for Women?
Some people are very intentional and live their lives on purpose. Others are not as aware and struggle to find purpose. Many simply respond to whatever life throws at them and it may not be their true calling. Being clear about and connected to your purpose, even if it shifts and changes as you grow, provides you with a road map. Each person has a unique journey and purpose. Do you know what your true calling is? Can you describe it, share it and live it?
Judy Hoberman presented these questions and invited to her podcast to discuss how I became a champion for women and gender equity in the workplace. As with our recent interview with Angel Ribo for MindaliaTV, our 50 minutes flew by as we discussed my career arc from direct sales to sales training then corporate diversity and finally my founding YWomen to focus on gender strategy.
