Women have faced challenges in being seen and treated as equals to their male counterparts since the beginning of time. The effects of the COVID-19 global pandemic have in many ways worsened this situation. New challenges have arisen, not least of which include: a widening gender pay gap, lack of sponsorship, increasing burnout and women rising as stronger leaders, yet still having their work unrecognised.
The Real Talk Series aims to tackle such problems through open and frank conversations with senior professionals and industry leaders, allowing women to share their experiences of the challenges they have faced and in doing so help others. The discussions cover career progression; balancing work and home life; the impact of the global pandemic; the hard decisions and sacrifices they have had to make; and what has worked for them as ambitious professionals.
We partnered with Google and The Unstereotype Alliance to kick off the Real Talk Series with a Tech Marketing Edition in celebration of International Women’s Day on the 8th March, 2022. We addressed the importance of representation and visibility in typically male-dominated industries and took a look at the lived experiences and challenges faced by women in tech marketing.
4 fabulous leaders joined us for the discussion:
