13: Ellen Pao and the State of Diversity at Work
32:47

Ellen Pao received international attention when she filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against Silicon Valley venture capital fund Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. She lost her case, but the lawsuit catalyzed a conversation we’re still having today about the lack of diversity in the workplace.

In this episode, Ellen and I discuss:

  • Ellen’s experience at Kleiner and what prompted her decision to file the gender discrimination lawsuit
  • What Ellen would do differently, knowing what she knows now
  • How much (or little) progress we’ve made in educating people about diversity issues
  • How today’s workers, regardless of their own gender, orientation, ethnicity, or ability, seek out employers who have a proven commitment to fostering diverse and inclusive workplaces
  • Why an inclusive and diverse culture starts with the leadership of the CEO
  • Ways to confront bias and discrimination at work

Check out Ellen’s book, Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change, and her nonprofit, Project Include.

12: Build the Company You Want to Work For
23:20

BondVet founder and Chief Veterinary Officer Dr. Zaynab Satchu is quick to point out that their company is not trying to disrupt the veterinary industry. But they are trying to change it, using technology and thoughtful design, and by focusing on the emotional wellbeing of their animal patients and their owners, as well as their employees.

On this episode, I chatted with Dr. Zay about how she made the leap from vet to startup founder.

What we talked about:

  • Dr. Zay’s journey to becoming a veterinarian, and how she knew she wanted to build her own company
  • What makes BondVet different from other vet clinics
  • The importance of being vulnerable as a leader
  • Dr. Zay’s 20-year goal to reduce the rate of suicide in the vet space, and how she brings mental health care front-and-center with her teams

11: How to Change Careers with Confidence
25:05

Most people will have an average of 12 jobs in their lifetime, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and younger workers will change jobs more frequently with an average tenure of 2.8 years. With every new job, and especially bigger career changes, it can be common to feel doubt and anxiety about whether you’re up for the challenge.

On this episode, I chatted with César Ruiz, Regional Vice President at Microsoft, about his career path, which has included jumps into several different industries. César talks candidly about imposter syndrome, both how he manages his own and how he helps his team manage it, too.

What we talked about:

  • César’s career changes from law and government work, to finance, to advertising, and finally into his current role at Microsoft
  • César’s experience being at 7 World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001
  • Ways to work through imposter syndrome
  • The importance of mentorship throughout your career, and especially during a career change

10: Confronting Bias with Cindy Augustine
28:01

Stereotyping is how our brains work, and it takes work to be self-aware when our biases creep in. That’s just the first step, though. When we recognize and understand our biases, we then have to be intentionally inclusive of other people so we can create room for them and their perspectives. 

This is a topic Cindy Augustine, Global Chief Talent Officer, and her team at FCB have thought a lot about. On this episode, Cindy and I talked about:

  • Cindy’s transition from being an attorney to being an HR leader
  • How Cindy “fully embraces” her responsibility to be a role model
  • How Cindy and her team built the Intentional Inclusion workshops that people want to be part of
  • Cindy tells a beautiful story about letting people in and dealing generously with them — and herself

8: The Truth About The Gig Economy with Sarah Kessler
18:49

When you hear about the “gig economy,” you might think about an army of creative freelancers who are traveling the world while working. That’s some of the people represented in the gig economy, but there are also people doing this work because they’re not ready to retire, or because they can’t find full-time employment.

On this episode, I interview Sarah Kessler, journalist and author of Gigged: The End of the Job and the Future of Work, to go beyond the myths of gig work.

What we talked about:

  • The real impact of the gig economy on workers and companies
