In Episode 8 of Unraveling Pink, guest Erin Rand (COO of ServiceRocket, Navigator for Fast Growing Companies; Flame Igniter) and I engage in an uncomfortable conversation. This is the conversation many women / femmes in senior and executive positions don’t want to have. Yet, Erin was game to have it — and share her view into the thoughts and conversations women in positions to make a difference have about gender diversity and bias.
And, as we learned from Jon Hicks in Episode 6, conflict is good. So, we also jumped into a disagreement about whether there in fact in a causal link between diversity and more successful, profitable companies.
To close us out, Erin issued our toughest challenge yet. One that has the ability to shift our society as a whole to a better place — something we desperately need right now — if we’re willing to accept the challenge.
