"Women don't do a very good job of building strategic relationships...(Building relationships with) the people that can help you...is imperative." Cindy Simpson on Electric Ladies podcast
Attending the ARPA-E Innovation Summit recently, we noticed the dearth of women in attendance, and, frustrated, sat down with someone who had some great answers and great advice for women who want to advance their careers.
Listen to Cindy Simpson, Chief Business Development Officer of the Assn. for Women in Science, and a long-time advocate for women, in this insightful conversation with host Joan Michelson.
You'll hear - take notes!:
...and more (with examples!)
"Keep your eyes open for opportunities…Don’t think you have to have 100% of the job description, you’ll learn the rest on the job…Don’t turn anything down.” Cindy Simpson on Electric Ladies podcast
Producer's Note: This was recorded on location at the ARPA-E conference, so there is some background noise (not bad).
