Smart group of interesting women
Maryalice and Julia interview three ladies with careers with few women. They are different ages, have different backgrounds and goals - but there are themes of difficulty, persistence and strategic management which are very interesting and wise.
The ladies are listening!
This is the best podcast ever!
I loved the first podcast about an eclectic group of women who have overcome odds and obtained success in their male-dominated fields. Julie & Maryal are a dynamic duo who bring enthusiasm and fun to a variety of topics addressing women's issues. Highly recommended!
