Meet The Band of Sisters, authors of the new book “You Should Smile More” (Dawn Hudson, Angelique Bellmer Krembs, Katie Lacey, Lori Tauber Marcus, Cie Nicholson, and Mitzi Short) on this episode of The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O’Shea Gorgone.

The group met while working various roles at PepsiCo and have known one another for twenty-five years. Collectively, they’ve worked for large corporations and small start-ups, holding most every title including CEO, president, chief marketing officer, and dozens of boards and advisory positions. We’ll talk with them about “You Should Smile More,” and get into what women encounter during their corporate careers.

They’ll help us unpack what large corporations and small businesses alike need to change in order to start equalizing workplace conditions.

Join us as we talk about:
– Moving beyond boosting diversity numbers to improving inclusion for an evolving work culture that allows women to contribute fully
– Why organizations should value and include diverse perspectives and experiences (and how to do it)
– How to help women more easily advance into positions of leadership and influence
– How much the current state of burnout and emotional exhaustion can add to micro-aggressions
