So, did you know that November is National Podcast Post Month? The challenge is for podcasters to post 30 podcast episodes in 30 days. If you know me, you know I like a challenge. So, I can’t resist.
I want to use this time to ensure women’s voices are heard. So, Unraveling Pink will move from a every two week-ish schedule to a daily (fingers crossed!) for the month of November. Join me on this journey by sharing your stories (message me on Twitter @UnravelingPink or send me a message on our Contact page) or by engaging in our male ally challenges. Together, we can unravel the pink bandana!
In this episode, I sat down with Jory Des Jardins, an advisor to female founders and startups. An entrepreneur herself, Jory co-founded BlogHer, which grew into the largest conference and community for women content creators in the world and was acquired by SheKnows Media. Jory shares insights about founding and funding from her own entrepreneurial experience and from advising others on their journeys. She closes with a challenge that applies to each of us and can be implemented at work tomorrow. Join us!
My guest this episode is Brian Colucci, Chief Business Development and Marketing Officer at Kilpatrick Townsend. Brian and I continue an ongoing conversation that we started off-mic about the culture of busyness that has become so normalized in Silicon Valley and in law firms, and we explore what happens when this culture bumps up against life – caring for kids, parents, etc.
While we are far from solving this problem, shining some light on it will hopefully create a conversation around how we can get back to a culture that better emphasizes our humanity.
