Loved our time together today! Your questions have been exactly what I hear from women all over, and I hope I’ve started to help you think differently about “balance“. See comments for the rest!!!
What challenges do you think woman face in the workplace and what would help millenials get into c-suite faster? Currently, I see corporate is primarily white female and white males at the top.
I’m rotating on to a new account and I just got back from maternity leave...I feel the need to prove myself but don’t want to lose the 1-2 hours I get with my son after daycare. Tips?
I work in banking, which as we know is a predominately male career. At my bank, all the MDs are male and no women in senior leadership positions. How can I get colleagues to take my ideas seriously?
Especially starting in a more Junior position I feel I don’t have the authority to say no to more work or longer hours as I don’t want to not be perceived as a team player. Any tips for balance?
I’m about to switch jobs and go to a Company where I will have a more visible role. I have primary custody of my two kids and I don’t feel like I have the support network to be successful at home/woek
Hello, Fishies! I’m thrilled to get to spend time with you today! It’s still dark in San Diego, and I’m sitting here in my home office in my PJs, armed with coffee, and ready to dig in. Let’s go!
I’m on maternity leave, just had a baby 1 weeks ago. How do I stay relevant w/o sacrificing my leave or looking desperate? How can I stay “engaged” or should I unplug? I go back March/April.
Are you concerned that when we only push “have it all” messaging to women we’re just adding to women’s career stress while reinforcing existing gender norms around home and childcare responsibilities?
I’m fairly young in my career and feel overwhelmed with my ambition. I want to make partner, have a good husband, have a good body, but seems like I can only pick 2 to focus on at a time. What worked?
How do you stay motivated knowing that unconscious bias does exist, especially in certain industries?
I love the motivation and TY for your time! But isn’t setting women’s expectations to want to have it all the actual problem? I’m happy having 3 things out of 5. Isnt that better for our wellbeing?
Thanks for your time - can you please tell us how you developed the framework described in your book?
How do you pursue your dream when organizational policies don’t allow you to, I.e., start your own business, etc.
I have no desire to “move up” the ladder. I simply want to make enough to afford a comfortable life. Does this make me less of a career woman?
New mom here - ways to overcome/cope the guilt of missing work when kid is sick or missing baby when baby is sick and focusing on work ?
While it may be possible for women to “have it all”, we face far more hurdles than most men to do so - conscious and unconscious biases, judgement, not to mention a lifetime of social conditioning...
What is the best way for a working mother to find time for herself while balancing a demanding job, two little kids, and a marriage?
In a creative partnership how do you handle if your male counterpart makes more than you.
How can you balance maintaining a relationship if your career has moved faster than your partner’s and as a result is more demanding?
How can you stand out in your career when you’re more reserved/introverted in personality? This is something getting in my way, and it makes me feel like a different person at the office.
To what extent is privilege a factor in your belief that women can in fact have it all. It seems like there or tangible obstacles, and intangible ones like patriarchy, economic status, etc. Thanks!
Thanks for doing this Q&A! What’s the most common obstacle that you think women face and prevents them from accomplishing their career goals?
