Episode #61 - Helping Professional Women Thrive in the Workplace with CEO Maricella Herrera Avila

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing the CEO of Ellevate Network, Maricella Herrera Avila. Ellevate is the largest community of a powerful coalition of ambitious and supportive women at work who show up for each other, helping each other, no matter their background or aspirations, to build a career they love. They also work to mobilize their collective power to change the culture of business. In today's episode, Maricella and I have an insightful conversation on the challenges women face in the workplace today and how they can do more than survive in their current spaces and places.

In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover…

  • Maricella’s journey navigating workplace culture and the role of CEO of Ellevate
  • Why it’s essential for women to redefine success on their own terms
  • How to figure out what to do when you want to do more or make an impact with your work
  • The importance of psychological safety within organizations for women
  • How leaders can better support women in the workplace
  • Why this isn’t just a women’s issue but an organizational issue
