Mindful Leadership Podcast with Shahana Banerjee : Episode 7
Have you ever worked in a place that had NO women’s restrooms?
Weirdly, both Reshma and I have!
There are so many ways in which we exclude women, without meaning to.
As we swapped stories and reminisced about our early years, 2 things clearly stood out.
1. It takes a special kind of leader, to consciously chose the difficult option, even when they could’ve taken the easier one. They chose to break established traditions and status quo, and hire women for the first time.
2. It takes a special kind of woman, a pioneer, like Reshma, who had to have the strength and courage to carve their own way through these unfathomable challenges.
These organizations wouldn’t be the market leaders they are today, without these pioneers.
Join me, as I chat with my friend and kindred spirit, Reshma Ramachandran, former Chief Transformation Officer of Adecco, a woman on a mission to help people discover their superpower and be their own greatest sponsor.
