You may have heard that many business owners are leaving the state of California, but I wonder if you’ve heard that there are more small businesses being created in California than ever before?
Today we sit down to talk with Fiona Ma, California State Treasurer, about her thoughts on how to support women leaders and small businesses, and how you can help advocate for those who need your support. That’s why episode 06 of How Women Inspire Podcast is about political advocacy you can do through your own networks!
In this episode of How Women Inspire Podcast, Fiona Ma is sharing the importance of being a fierce political advocate and actionable steps you can take right now to support female political leaders in your area.
Some of the talking points Fiona and I go over in this episode include:
How Fiona learned from her parents to love both the people and the profession, and how she took that advice and upbringing to become a CPA and the California state treasurer.
The importance Fiona has found through keeping her eye on the prize and pushing through to help her as she gets numb to some of the antics she encounters on social media in reference to her career.
How Fiona has helped encourage diversity among leaders on public company boards, and how it all started with her leaving her first job because she didn’t see diversity in the boardrooms of that company.
How we can help women in political seats make the change that matters to us, and how best to fund their advances in the political arena.
If you’ve ever been curious if politics should matter to you, or if you’ve ever wondered how to support your political leaders besides voting, this episode will open your eyes and share the wave of influence your political leaders have to change your state for the better. So be sure to tune in to all the episodes to hear even more about the points outlined above.
