Love Women at Work. Practical advice to help me navigate complicated situations. Especially when I donât have a mentor of my own.
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 â with a diverse range of guests who all bring their own expertise and unique cultural experiences â 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.
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 Iâd use to describe the time youâll spend with them. Thanks for putting out such a superb show ladies - keep up the great work!
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 canât 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.
Relevant topics, honest conversations, and amazing hosts. Each episode inspires me to do more & be more. I am so happy I found this podcast!!! Looking forward to listening to more!
After a recent disappointing lunch session put on by my global companyâs Womenâs 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... itâs making a BIG difference!!
This podcast is great itâs full of insight. Iâve literally been the personal hype woman for this podcast sending it to all my coworkers, posting in our womenâs ERG, and posting it on social media. Itâs great knowing there are other women experiencing and thinking some of the same things as me, itâs also wonderful hearing ways to handle various situations that can occur in the workplace.
This podcast is food for my soul! I love every episode. Thanks so much for your hard work!!
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?
As a woman in a male dominated industry I value these conversations and sharing greatly, please keep them coming!!!
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.
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.
This is fine. Itâs good information. Itâs 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 arenât experts on the queer community so they canât cover it. Not very impressive from a publication of this quality.
They take on all the obvious topics but layer in views from professors and research. And the hosts offer such informed insights.
Love this...but the âmmm-hmmmsâ from the person who is moderating is extremely annoying. I had to stop listening because it was so difficult tune out.
Love everything about this podcast, from the editors to the topics to the guests. I listened to season 1 in a few days and canât wait for the next season.
Loved this limited series. Wish there were more episodes- so much more to discuss.
Love this podcast! I was really sad to hear that it's a limited-run series. Please please create more! These conversations have been so beneficial to me professionally and as a woman.
This podcast is so incredibly helpful, empowering and interesting. Please make more episodes.
Informative, interesting and truly a great podcast. If they had a podcast episode every day, it wouldnât be enough for me.
It just isnât. 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 isnât brought up in the workplace because IT DOESNâT EXIST!
These conversations, especially the segment on being heard, is so valuable. Iâm amazed at the honesty shared here and will share it with my colleagues as well! Thank you.
I have so appreciated these discussions and diving into these topics.
When is season 2 coming!?!?!? Please, please, please soon!!!! My favorite podcast ever!
This podcast was fantastic-o!!!! The energy of the three main HBR hosts, the diversity of guests, ideas, and topics, it was so relatable! And I simply love Sarah Green Carmichael. She is so down to earth and asks such great questions. Thank you for this. So timely!! ðð¾
My go-to podcast for all women at work things related. Fantastic! Keep it up!
I love Women at Work and getting tips and tricks for the workplace, which despite being fulfilling, can leave this woman feeling exhausted and frustrated at times.
A friend recommended this and I inhaled all the episodes. I love it to much that Iâve 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.
Iâm sad this podcast is over! Please make more episodes!
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 HBRâs 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 canât wait for season 2! Thanks so much for creating this highly insightful and helpful podcast.
These have been so helpful to me - the Conversations are relatable and practical. I hope they do more of these.
Great podcast! Iâve learned so much from all the episodes Iâve listened to. I really hope this will be longer than 6 episodes.
Listened (without interrupting) to the episode about listening. Lots of helpful tips!
Quite pleased with the candor and depth of conversation, as well as the intergenerational perspectives. Looking forward to more.
As a professional woman, this podcast (so far) addresses the issues that run through my head on a daily basis. Thank you so much for putting your talent and energy into this project.
Ladies! Congratulations on such an amazing podcast. The topics are smart, relevant, and really interesting. Great guests and great questions! You're only two episodes in, but it has already been so helpful! I'm looking forward to the episodes to come. Great work!
This podcast is great
I am a devoted HBR Ideacast fan. I was thrilled to hear about Women at Work. The first episode felt like an informative coffee shop conversation with fierce female friends! Looking forward to future episodes.
I enjoyed the first episode - much of it resonated my own experience and challenges. There was a good balance between experts and research and examples from reality.I found the advice helpful and look forward to putting it to use. I'm looking forward to future episodes!
Canât wait to share with the women at my company!
