In this episode…

If women are good leaders, they risk being branded “too bossy” or “too tough.” If they set boundaries, or ask for what they need to succeed, they’re “too demanding.” If they are passionate about their work, they’re “too emotional.” Every day women across the world face a barrage of double standards that men are not subjected to. As Podge Thomas says, the system wasn’t built for us or by us, so it’s up to us to continue to build a better one.

In this week’s episode, host Sarah Nichols sits down with Talent Management Specialist & Business Consultant, Podge Thomas to discuss the importance of women taking risks, speaking up, and asking for what they need. They also discuss what it means to be “neurodiverse” as well as the benefits of leveraging peoples’ differences.
