Show Notes

Despite tremendous gains made by women in the workforce, women still face many structural and personal barriers to success—especially in leadership roles. In this episode, Mary and Chris hear from several female listeners who are struggling with gender and leadership issues and expectations.  

Raising the Roof in Tulsa is up for promotion to District Manager. She is also the only woman at the management level. Even though her district outperforms her peers, her boss told her she needs to make a more “compelling case” to win the promotion. WTF???

Woman on the Verge in Virginia is tired of being the only woman in the C-suite. She is tired of having to represent the views of all the women and she can’t bear to attend another retreat golf outing. Plus, the wives of the other executives are mean to her. Is it time to throw in the towel?

Snow Flakes in Florida has no interest in mentoring or coaching the younger women in her company. She finds them entitled and dismissive. She worked her ass off to succeed and thinks they should just toughen up. Is she justified in her attitude or is she going to hell?
