Rank #2: The Broad Experience 74: On Confidence

Podcast cover
Read more
Study after study shows women have less confidence than men. But you hardly need a study to work that out. Just look around you - how many women do you know who exude the same self-belief as the men in your life? Confidence, or the lack of it, is a big issue in many women's careers, including my own. In this show I talk to business owner Denise Barreto, whose confidence I envy, and NPR reporter Stacey Vanek Smith, who shares a lot of my hangups. She has to psych herself up to ask for things at work, because she's not quite sure she deserves it. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Podcast cover

In this show two guests take on two listener questions. The first asks whether women have to strive so much for equality. Can't they just be happy if they enjoy their jobs...even if they know the guy before them got paid more for doing the exact same thing?
Another listener says there's a huge gap between her and her husband's salaries. She likes her job, but wonders if she should give it up to stay home with her child so her Silicon Valley spouse can have what his colleagues do: a stay-at-home wife 'who makes his life happen.'

Podcast cover

For centuries women didn't have the opportunity to make decisions outside the home. Now they do. But even today, after decades in the workplace and in public life, our decisions are questioned more than men's. In this show we meet Therese Huston, author of the new book How Women Decide: What's True, What's Not, and What Strategies Spark the Best Choices.

We discuss myths around women and decision making, why we're still second-guessing Marissa Meyer two years after she canceled Yahoo's work-from-home policy, and what's at stake when women take a risk. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Podcast cover

Women hear that we negotiate less than men, that we're not as good at it as men, that we get backlash when we do negotiate. All such negative stuff. Yet there's so much power in negotiation. It's a vital tool to get us what we want at work and everywhere else. In this show I sit down with Natalie Reynolds to demystify negotiation and talk about how women can make it work for them - in their own way. That includes not accepting 'no' as a final answer. Natalie is CEO of negotiation consultancy Advantage Spring and author of the book We Have a Deal. This is the first of a two-part show.

"Empower yourself. You will be underestimated and misunderstood. Do it anyway." Those were some of the first words I heard Dana Canedy speak at a women's careers event earlier this year. In this show I ask Dana to expand on that advice. She was the first person in her family to go to college. She had dreamed of being a writer from childhood, and had a long career in journalism, much of it at the New York Times. But along the way she experienced terrible loss. Now she is a single mother to a 12-year-old boy and she runs the Pulitzer Prizes, the first woman and person of color to do so. In this episode she talks about resilience, handling yourself at work, and the joy of giving back.
