Episode 83: I Did It My Way

Every woman across the board had this moment in their early to mid-teens where they were like, ‘Wait a second, I really have to rely on myself.’ The Prince Charming fantasy totally evaporated.

This is the second of two shows on generational conflict at work. This time we focus on Gen X women and some of the ways they can differ from their younger colleagues and fail to understand them - and vice versa. 

You'll hear from four guests - Nora Mathews, the millennial employee featured in the last show, Joanna Bloor, a longtime Silicon Valley executive and now CEO of The Amplify Lab, Anne Loehr, and Rachael Ellison. We discuss Gen X women as the archetypal 'good girls', the different generations' approach to work and parenthood, and whether younger women expect too much support from older ones. 

You can also read a transcript of the show.

This week's show is supported by Lola - like The Broad Experience, it's a woman-run enterprise focused on something we think about a lot, but don't always talk about.
