||CleanWhy You Shouldn’t Only Focus on Women Initiatives w/ Molly Cain||While it’s so much better than years before, the startup and venture capital world is notoriously difficult for women. But at the same time, supporting only women initiatives is counterintuitive, says Molly Cain founder of Gov City. She’s worked in both the government and the tech space where she’s witnessed really positive changes for women over the years. She didn’t expect to experience this lack of diversity in the federal world because it’s easy to assume all the rules and regulations protect it from bias. But Molly says it was the most fierce environment for women because emotions are especially not welcome. One of the greatest gifts women often have is their ability to use their emotions to collaborate, connect, and build relationships. But it went unappreciated in the government sector. How do you balance the two? We discuss that and more on today’s episode.||1/29/2019||Free||View in iTunes|

He continued, “the current system is an industrial one. To be able to to deliver on time and at a better price, we need to figure out how to best modernize our practices.” We sat down with Mark Esper to chat on how tables have turned and what the future is for innovation in the army.||1/22/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
