Women at Work

Business #92Management #11

Women face gender discrimination throughout our careers. It doesn't have to derail our ambitions — but how do we prepare to deal with it? There's no workplace orientation session about narrowing the wage gap, standing up to interrupting male colleagues, or taking on many other issues we encounter at work. So HBR staffers Amy Bernstein, Amy Gallo, and Emily Caulfield are untangling some of the knottiest problems. They interview experts on gender, tell stories about their own experiences, and give lots of practical advice to help you succeed in spite of the obstacles.

    A must listen podcast for women in the work force

    Aren’t you supposed to support all women? Even those without kids?
    A little late to this podcast but a bit shocked on the episode disparaging workers without kids who have picked up the pieces for working parents. I worked 60-80 hours a week because another key member of my team had a child and couldn’t. And the thanks I got was to be laid off, yet he wasn’t, so please respect how hard COVID is for ALL women. Until then, I’ll have to give up on this podcast. So disappointed and shocked by Harvard.

    But, I need women’s thoughts.

  • Tolani
    Small suggestion
    Love the podcast. One suggestion: flip the order of podcast to most recent. I hate scrolling 😩
  • MauradingOrange
    Powerful resource
    As a white woman, I specifically appreciate the re-release of the series on race & gender in the context of the workplace. I hope that this helps reframe many of our professional and personal relationships with black women and women of color. Overall this podcast seems to be a great resource for strategies to navigate our changing and challenging professional development.
  • Why I listen
    Love it !
    This podcast has taught me more about how to be a strong professional than anything else. Love everything about this podcast. Listen every week without missing a beat! Amy and Amy do a wonderful job of hosting!
  • Tupstl
    Sisterhood episode
    I really enjoyed the sisterhood episode. Great insights, particularly around listening and knowing how to listen and respond without trying to make up some pretend common experience that may alienate the other person.
  • feyfaavae
    Just about perfect
    I very much enjoy listening to this podcast every week. The topics are relevant, the hosts are relatable and provide diverse viewpoints, the guests featured have actual tips that I can start implementing not only in my career but life in general.
  • Dr Ruth G
    Just brilliant!!
    What an amazing and fun podcast. I love how real and vulnerable the hosts are. Their guests are the best of the best! As a woman leader in higher education, everything hear resonates.
  • missingastarclancat
    Incredibly useful, tastefully curated tools for women at work
    I love this show to pieces. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while and can’t get enough. I‘ve even repeated several episodes multiple times and enjoy exploring the extra readings linked in show notes. Across the board, it provides widely applicable but succinct and relatable examples—I’ve been able to implement ideas and add tools to my day-to-day that make work as a woman so much better. Love it!
  • tiredhr
    Informative and Empowering
    My “pre-work” podcast before I begin my day. The hosts are subject matter experts, and have a wonderful rapport with each other. Guests are awesome too. I look forward to every episode!
  • Lemagod
    I absolutely love this podcast! The content is current, relevant, and the hosts are authentic and relatable. Keep doing what you do.
  • TracieLeeB
    Every episode hits home
    I love this podcast. Great choice of topics, love the chatting at the end where the hosts talk about the interviews they did. It’s all very real, and makes me long for more (as in quantity) real personal/professional discussions with other women.
  • Kricket Smurf
    Wish I had this series years ago!
    Every episode hits home. So relatable! (Men would get a lot out of it, too.) And to think, I almost skipped over this series entirely because I thought it would be too girly & ‘feely’.
  • podcast-dj
    Every episode is relevant and helpful
  • Texan native
    Episode 1 of season 4 won’t play :(
    Love this who’s and was excited to hear it. Just came out today and it’s not working :/
  • Aphixxihpa
    I am a cis gender male, who manages a gender diverse team, and this podcast is among my favorites - not just as a manager but as a human in the workforce. The depth of every episode is in line with the best podcasts ever produced, and well beyond the scope of a standard business podcast. One of my favorite aspects is the thoughtful processing after each interview, where the hosts digest the interview and highlight personal takeaways. This podcast is well worth your time.
  • jehmaloof12
    Loving this!
    Love the content. Keep it up!

    Feminist grievance culture
    They conveniently disregard the fact men are more likely to be unemployed, lack a college education, be homeless, die younger, lack health insurance, lose custody of their kids, suffer from addiction, etc.

    Great Advice on Relevant Topics
    Love the topics and how applicable they are. Great advice and interesting to listen to.
  • Whyyyyyyyyyy123
    This is exactly what I hoped it would be
    I found this podcast when I was looking around for career-oriented shows. I’d subscribed to a few other related podcasts before, but they’re all hit and miss. It’s not to say they’re terrible or useless or anything so drastic, but I can honestly say that sometimes, I skip an episode. That’s not the case with Women at Work. I enjoy this show so much! The topics are engaging and thoughtful, and the hosts do a wonderful job of really digging in to the nuances of what it’s actually like to be a woman in the workplace. Thank you for your research and efforts. I am truly a fan, and I would recommend Women at Work to any woman, whether she’s working in an office, at home, or is a stay-at-home mom. It’s nice to feel like someone else has your back, and sometimes, a mentoring career woman with more experience than you is really helpful. I’d also recommend this podcast to men, because let’s be real: men could use a LOT more insight into the issues women have to deal with in the workplace. A little empathy wouldn’t hurt either! Long story short, Women at Work is exactly what I hoped it would be, and I am very glad to have found the show. Thanks again.

    Thank you Deloitte Digital
    Deloitte Digital sponsors this exceptional podcast and too often we forget to thank them so want them to know that their message is getting through and associating their company with such a quality series ( ashamed to say I only discovered it recently but have gone back to listen to the previous seasons) will help them gain new clients and engender good faith from their existing clients. Thank you Amy B Amy G and Nicole for bringing your A game always. The guests are great but I really enjoy when the three of you discuss the topic after the guest.
  • TheRealC
    Thank you for having the two ladies on the show to talk about Sisterhood is scarce. They brought up issues I have been feeling as a woman in technology, and it felt nice to be heard for once.
  • commuter fan
    Make more episodes!! We need them!
    Thank you!
  • angelface1007
    So insightful and useful for men and women and all levels of experience
    I just found this podcast and am so happy to have done so. There are many topics and great speakers that I can really relate to and I made several realizations about my own behaviors in just the first episode! Can’t wait to listen to them all!
  • Culpeper2
    Thoughtful discussions relevant to working women
    The topics covered are timely and relevant to professional working women, and the range of views and perspectives makes for interesting discussion. I’ve listened to several and my favorite is the one that addressed the thankless, administrative or event planning projects that women often get stuck with. I talked about it with several of my female colleagues. I definitely recommend this podcast and look forward to the future episodes!
  • Ellen from Taiwan
    Love this podcast !
    I have recommended this podcast to many of my friends. Can’t wait to hear your new episodes!
  • Mikelqaz
    Thank you!
    I've learned so much from these incredible women. It's changed the way I think about myself, other women, and spaces we navigate. Thanks for telling us the truths we need to know🖤
  • CKH225
    Found it!
    I was looking for a podcast that reflected my voice, and this is it! Interesting and insightful, I highly recommend it for anyone who is a modern woman at work and everyone who works with them.
  • woofdog55
    The guests are excellent, the views address intersectionality, it’s well structured - just yes. It’s helping me think critically about my own role
  • GemTwist5
    Love Women at Work. Practical advice to help me navigate complicated situations. Especially when I don’t have a mentor of my own.
  • infantek
    Enlightening, Empowering, & Empathetic
    I just joined a more corporate work environment after being a teacher for several years, when my life plan was radically different, and this Podcast covers many topics — with a diverse range of guests who all bring their own expertise and unique cultural experiences — that are suddenly relevant to my life as a working woman (and hopefully someday, God Willing, a working mother). Each Podcast makes me feel ready to advocate for myself and the other women that I work with and help me stay cognizant of my own experiences and how my actions and reactions influence my place in the office. Keep up the great work, tackling challenging subjects with authenticity and fearlessness.
  • Katie Joy B.
    Women Who Wow!
    Nicole, Amy, and Nicole, along with her stellar guests shine the brightest of lights on what it means to be a female in our current workforce culture! Bold, insightful, and engaging are just a few of the words I’d use to describe the time you’ll spend with them. Thanks for putting out such a superb show ladies - keep up the great work!
  • Infamous Snoozer
    Remove the last 15 mins of episode Make Yourself Heard
    This series has been affirming and empowering to help navigate the workplace as a woman, especially a woman in the tech industry. However, since we can’t review individual episodes, I specifically wanted to strongly suggest removing the last 15 minutes of the Make Yourself Heard episode. The speaker at that point onward offers advice that contradicts the good content previously provided in that episode. She suggests undermining yourself to accommodate the male colleagues that interrupt you. Doing so nearly promotes tokenism rather than promoting equality.
  • lynda726
    Relevant topics, honest conversations, and amazing hosts. Each episode inspires me to do more & be more. I am so happy I found this podcast!!! Looking forward to listening to more!

    Changed My Workplace
    After a recent disappointing lunch session put on by my global company’s Women’s Network resource group, I suggested in the feedback survey to listen to the HBR WaW podcast and to have a discussion. I was so nervous they would take it as offensive that I gave honest feedback about my disappointment of their previous session.... but to my surprise, a couple weeks later, an event was on the calendar to listen to the Perfectionism episode, and we used the discussion guide to have a rich conversation with key takeaways we could implement in our day to day lives. The women in the session from many different company functions were all enthused and highly engaged, in contrast to the previous one I had attended where most people including myself were defensive, confused, and feeling ignored. THANK YOU for providing this resource... it’s making a BIG difference!!
  • Mbgurl52
    Love this podcast
    This podcast is great it’s full of insight. I’ve literally been the personal hype woman for this podcast sending it to all my coworkers, posting in our women’s ERG, and posting it on social media. It’s great knowing there are other women experiencing and thinking some of the same things as me, it’s also wonderful hearing ways to handle various situations that can occur in the workplace.
  • Farmen Carmen FL
    So in love with this podcast
    This podcast is food for my soul! I love every episode. Thanks so much for your hard work!!
  • mamabunny1st
    Thoughts Parental leave
    San Francisco is the only city that requires private employer to provide full paid 6 weeks leave to bond with your babies. How can we advocate and put a bill to provide longer paid parental leave nation wide?
  • jgillPDX
    I look forward to these!!!
    As a woman in a male dominated industry I value these conversations and sharing greatly, please keep them coming!!!
  • Aimee176
    Hits and misses
    I really like some of the episodes, but others end up sounding more like social justice warrior rants about sexism and implicit/explicit bias. A bit too leftist for me.
