Secrets to Breaking Glass Ceilings

In this episode, herdacious host Lorelei chats with Lee Anne Crockett about navigating top corporate positions as a woman. Having encountered adversity when seeking promotions in a male-dominated industry, Lee learned the number of systemic barriers women face on their climb to the top of the professional pyramid. From her experience, Lee teaches us ways to outsmart the system, or more accurately put, to mastering the "game." From leaving emotions at the door to coming equip with a plan B, Lee points out that one of the ways to win is by knowing that there's a game to be played in the first place! And once we develop our game changing strategies, we’ll be able to checkmate. So, let’s claim the game, break some rules, boot the kings and check as Queens!
