Women in Finance! One of the topics that I have been wanting to cover for a long time on TVS, and finally had the opportunity to do so with Valerie Wong. Today’s episode focuses a lot on the cultural biases that dominate the workspace, things that are useful for both males and females to be aware of. Valerie shares many solutions and tips on how to navigate these processes being a woman working in a still mostly male-centric industry and how we can go about improving the experience for women. I found many of the insights Valerie shared to be very helpful and hope you do too. Please enjoy!

  1. Could you share some of your experiences or challenges that you have faced being a woman in finance?
    1. Cultural biases that dominate the workforce
    2. Being a Latina in finance
  2. How can people become more ware of these biases that may be conscious or unconscious?
  3. Would you mind sharing any specific work place examples of times of how you overcame these cultural biases?
    1. Traits that were commonly associated with being feminine are now important in the workplace
      1. Empathy, reciprocity, vulnerability, humility, inclusiveness, generosity, patience
  4. What are the three pieces of advice that you would leave my listeners with?
    1. Network, Advocates, and Sponsors
    2. There is no one perfect path to success
    3. Happiness comes from within
