Accelerating Women’s Presence in the C-Suite, Chief, Carolyn Childers & Lindsay Kaplan
We are moving into our summer bi-weekly podcast and taking a break today from Paris activities.
Chief Carolyn Childers and Lindsay Kaplan are the co-founders of Chief a private network focused on connecting and supporting female leaders with a mission to accelerate women’s presence in the C-Suite. Carolyn and Lindsay took inspiration from what they wish they had for themselves, and the result is an exciting new venture that’s challenging both of them in ways they never anticipated.

You know one thing that I think they should consider doing which would seem antithetical? Invite a small percentage of men to be members of the club.After all part of what you would consider ‘the problem’ is women not having access to the same resources as men do. Right? As such having men involved will accelerate the opportunities and the connections that women can make. And while some might think it could change the room in a negative way I don’t think that will deprecate the upside of doing so.it might even make sense to offer membership to certain qualified men at a lower cost than women. (Reverse of how many dating apps work and I hate to use that as an example but will to make my point).
What’s their model? How do they make it work financially?
