“What’s the point of focusing on getting women into leadership roles?” Yvette asked in a conversation off line, prior to this interview. Knowing her generous, supportive nature, I was taken aback by her question. Doesn’t she know how important it is to see people like us in leadership positions?
Having spent several years focused in the area of diversity, through my work with generational differences, I had to find out why a woman, who is a senior producer in an all male dominated industry (video-gaming) would ever ask that question.
So, I roped her into a twenty-minute interview on this very topic. Not only does she share practical strategies for getting the support you need as an up-and-comer, she nails the single greatest reason she’s never struggled with the idea of becoming a leader in the industry.
Listen in to find out how you can rise through the ranks, and get your foot in the door of any industry.
