Women have made strides in the workplace over the last few decades, but there’s still plenty of progress yet to be made. In particular, women are underrepresented within executive leadership of many organizations. Is that going to change in our lifetime? What progress are we making at championing gender diversity and allowing women to get ahead?
To answer that question, we turned to Lindsay Kaplan, who’s been a leader in the marketing & communications field for some time now. She first came to my attention when she joined Casper’s founding team to lead communications and brand engagement. In 2019, she co-founded Chief, the private network dedicated to connecting and supporting women in executive leadership.
On this episode we discuss Chief’s mission, the company’s COVID pivot, how the pandemic has hit working mothers especially hard, why Taylor Swift’s “The Man” is a real thing, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg: her legacy and fear of what’s to come next.
