The feelings of belonging and making a notable difference are important to our sense of professional worth. It is the job of the leader, a CEO or founder, to build an equitable, dynamic, and productive workplace for their employees. And while this discussion does take place, it doesn’t happen nearly as often in the realm of entrepreneurs and small business owners. Nancy Geenen is here today to change that and talk about her experiences making this conversation more prevalent. This week’s episode 84 of How Women Inspire Podcast is about Nancy’s book, The Advantage of Other, and asking ‘what if?’!
In this episode of How Women Inspire Podcast, Nancy Geenen is sharing the importance of finding your voice and actionable steps you can take right now to get involved in causes you care about.
