Love Women at Work. Practical advice to help me navigate complicated situations. Especially when I don’t have a mentor of my own.

Enlightening, Empowering, & Empathetic

by infantek on Jan 18, 2019
Rating: ★★★★★

I just joined a more corporate work environment after being a teacher for several years, when my life plan was radically different, and this Podcast covers many topics — with a diverse range of guests who all bring their own expertise and unique cultural experiences — that are suddenly relevant to my life as a working woman (and hopefully someday, God Willing, a working mother). Each Podcast makes me feel ready to advocate for myself and the other women that I work with and help me stay cognizant of my own experiences and how my actions and reactions influence my place in the office. Keep up the great work, tackling challenging subjects with authenticity and fearlessness.

Women Who Wow!

Nicole, Amy, and Nicole, along with her stellar guests shine the brightest of lights on what it means to be a female in our current workforce culture! Bold, insightful, and engaging are just a few of the words I’d use to describe the time you’ll spend with them. Thanks for putting out such a superb show ladies - keep up the great work!

Remove the last 15 mins of episode Make Yourself Heard

by Infamous Snoozer on Dec 22, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

This series has been affirming and empowering to help navigate the workplace as a woman, especially a woman in the tech industry. However, since we can’t review individual episodes, I specifically wanted to strongly suggest removing the last 15 minutes of the Make Yourself Heard episode. The speaker at that point onward offers advice that contradicts the good content previously provided in that episode. She suggests undermining yourself to accommodate the male colleagues that interrupt you. Doing so nearly promotes tokenism rather than promoting equality.

Changed My Workplace

by Miz Lauren on Dec 07, 2018

After a recent disappointing lunch session put on by my global company’s Women’s Network resource group, I suggested in the feedback survey to listen to the HBR WaW podcast and to have a discussion. I was so nervous they would take it as offensive that I gave honest feedback about my disappointment of their previous session.... but to my surprise, a couple weeks later, an event was on the calendar to listen to the Perfectionism episode, and we used the discussion guide to have a rich conversation with key takeaways we could implement in our day to day lives. The women in the session from many different company functions were all enthused and highly engaged, in contrast to the previous one I had attended where most people including myself were defensive, confused, and feeling ignored. THANK YOU for providing this resource... it’s making a BIG difference!!

Love this podcast

This podcast is great it’s full of insight. I’ve literally been the personal hype woman for this podcast sending it to all my coworkers, posting in our women’s ERG, and posting it on social media. It’s great knowing there are other women experiencing and thinking some of the same things as me, it’s also wonderful hearing ways to handle various situations that can occur in the workplace.

So in love with this podcast

Thoughts Parental leave

San Francisco is the only city that requires private employer to provide full paid 6 weeks leave to bond with your babies. How can we advocate and put a bill to provide longer paid parental leave nation wide?

I look forward to these!!!

Hits and misses

by Aimee176 on Oct 10, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I really like some of the episodes, but others end up sounding more like social justice warrior rants about sexism and implicit/explicit bias. A bit too leftist for me.

Thank You

I just finished listening to the Authenticity episode, and I can just say THANK YOU. This episode resonated so much to me and the struggles I encounter everyday at work. I am a Latina with a strong accent and direct personality, and being authentic at work has been more of a struggle than I ever thought, especially working for a Forbes Top 50 company. So thank you for encouraging me to be myself and the importance of it.

Narrow and Confused About What Intersectional Means

by mmupperman on Aug 16, 2018
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

This is fine. It’s good information. It’s not terrible original, but nice to have in context of a full episode. Focuses exclusively on heterosexual, cisgendered women. Sorry ladies, there are more than just straight cis women of different races if you want to include diversity. I mean I would even be happy with calling out that the information is focused only on a certain type of woman and they aren’t experts on the queer community so they can’t cover it. Not very impressive from a publication of this quality.

Fresh perspectives

They take on all the obvious topics but layer in views from professors and research. And the hosts offer such informed insights.

Moderator needs to only talk and not make random noises

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Love this...but the “mmm-hmmms” from the person who is moderating is extremely annoying. I had to stop listening because it was so difficult tune out.

Wage Gap Isn’t Real

by #DoodleHero2015 on May 19, 2018
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

It just isn’t. There was a law passed YEARS ago that mandated that women get payed the same as men, so the idea that women get payed less than men is ludicrous. Of course this isn’t brought up in the workplace because IT DOESN’T EXIST!

A friend recommended this and I inhaled all the episodes. I love it to much that I’ve been inspired to have a podcast club. I invited some female colleagues from other firms and we will be discussing the each episode of the podcast- like a book club. Please make more.

Eye-opening! A ‘must listen’ for working women!

by Emeraldtigress on Mar 20, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

I consider myself quite knowledgeable and aware of gender biases - from reading and watching a lot on these issues. But I learned so much, listening to HBR’s Women at Work. Clearly, there are a lot of challenges that I did not even know of. But being aware of them helped me understand some of the behaviors and actions of people I interact with. I can’t wait for season 2! Thanks so much for creating this highly insightful and helpful podcast.
