You used to think that gender was a simple thing. For some of you, you simply were born into one, and for others, you have questioned, identified and discovered for yourself. Whatever your gender is, gender does play a very important role in shaping what your life looks like – this is undeniable.
And in this post #metoo era, it is often an uncomfortable topic to discuss. Today we're going to be focusing on what it's like to be a leader as a woman. How women can support and empower each other, and some of the traumatic things that women face in the world. I have back on the show today Mary and Anna Bloom (of Snap Inc. and Airbnb Plus, respectively) who are here to share some personal stories and excellent advice for men and women alike around what it's like to be a powerful woman.
We’ll discuss what it means to be a feminist and how this concept has evolved over the course of their lives, the ways that they have been leaders while maintaining feminist identities, motherhood as an identity shift, and ways you can support yourself as a woman. I think you're going to find the way that they show up in their organizations as women to be profoundly inspiring whether you're a man, a woman, or any other gender.
You are allowed to be a powerful woman. And men, you are allowed to be feminists.
