Girl Power in the Workplace

I listen to a lot of podcasts and spend a lot of time reading books about how to improve your standing in the workplace and the challenges women face in the workplace.  There are a lot of great resources out there that usually come to similar conclusions: women need to support each other, take more risks and find a mentor.

For me, most of my mentors and bosses have been men.  Some have helped me realize what not to do and some have helped me come out of my shell.  In fact, a voice that resonates strongly with me is a mentor who told me I needed to be more assertive.  In fear of being labeled a bitch or a boss, I didn't fight hard enough for my positions, despite my qualifications.  I think of what he said to me often and use it to stand up for what I believe is right.

I really love podcasts and had the opportunity to record one of my own with City of San Antonio City Manager Sheryl Sculley, who talked about mentorship, taking risks, work-life balance and so much more.
