Episode synopsis

Christy and Erica discuss building a marketing leadership team that does not compromise on diversity. They also discuss whether prior SaaS experience is necessary in a marketing leadership role at a SaaS company. They ponder why female candidates can feel the need to explain themselves more, and what needs to happen to break through unconscious bias in the workplace.

Highlights include: 

- Personal lessons on managing gender diversity from the home environment

- How diversity, equity, and inclusion are 3 different things

- How the hiring practice of doing a ‘listening interview’ and then a ‘questioning interview’ can be critical to hiring success

- How Christy builds and structures her organization and marketing leadership

- How to effectively transition from a bigger to a smaller company, by presenting yourself as a ‘sherpa’
