Growth Edge Leadership Podcast


Mar 9, 2020

Christine Spadafor is with us again. This is part two, so if you missed part one last week, make sure you listen to that episode too.

This week Christine and I dig into one of her topics of expertise -- gender issues in the workplace. Christine gives us an overview of where gender parity currently stands in the US compared to our European counterparts. We discuss the various systemic, cultural, and personal barriers to women advancing in their careers and how to overcome those barriers. 

Christine shares how she landed two board seats (it wasn’t through recruiters!) and reminds us why networking, mentorship, and sponsorship are so important -- especially as it pertains to the advancement of women in the workplace.

In today’s episode you’ll learn:

  • About Christine’s career path
  • How she landed her board seats
  • About the current state of gender parity in U.S. businesses
  • About the cultural, systemic, and personal barriers to women advancing in their careers
  • How to create your own opportunities
