Last week, I restarted a podcast-style webinar series of conversations with women, about women, many or most who work in male-dominated fields and have found a sense of something that works for them. Call it: success, adaptation, fervor, badass-ness.
I can’t tell you how happy I was to launch the series with my very good friend, Margaret Lake, who has had more than her share of experiences to share.
And she didn’t disappoint.
Coming from radio, film, music, venue management – just about every area of entertainment – her stories were perhaps more colorful than some.
My favorite gems were:
“You kind of try to fit in with the monkey talk. Everyone was yelling, so I started yelling too.”
“Women, more than men, believe that they have
to give up things in order to get what they want.”
“I realized that I was the only woman in the room not serving food.”
Why are these conversations so important? What do I hope to achieve by creating these conversations and asking others to listen in?
Because one woman can give a voice to many. Just in the week since this interview, we’ve heard from other women who said ‘thank you for saying what I didn’t know was okay to say; thank you for giving voice to what I feel.’
Here’s the interview – give it a listen and share it freely.
I’d love to hear from you on future #SpotlightOnHer guest ideas, comments and about your experience. Comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
