Hey Boss Lady!

Women are in positions of leadership in the business world more than ever before. And for many women who make it to the top, it’s about more than just power and a big paycheck. They’re giving back, in ways that sometimes even they never expected!

Hey Boss, Lady! Is our new podcast about what women are doing once they make it to the top of their fields. The stories they tell are stories of transformation. They’re stories that inspire and, at a time in our world when we’re all facing challenges, they give us hope.

Women leaders: What difference does it make that there are more of us now?

We launch Season II of Hey, Boss Lady with a special season preview.

The landscape for women in leadership is better than it used to be, but in the corporate and nonprofit worlds, most top positions are still held by men. Hey, Boss Lady is a podcast about women leaders and their stories of how they got there and what they’re doing to make change.

Andrea and Kristi both have a lot to say from their own experiences. Combining her background in positive psychology with her years as an entrepreneur, Andrea Goeglein has mentored countless CEOs in her business, ServingSuccess. Kristi Atwater has more than 20 years of experience in the corporate world. She is Chief Audit Executive at Everi, a prominent company in the gaming industry, and leads the Women’s Executive Circle in Las Vegas, a group devoted to getting more women in the c-suite and on corporate boards.

Season II guests include Las Vegas entrepreneur and philanthropist Kema Ogden, a powerful community advocate; Sheila Ronning, president and founder of Women in the Boardroom; and–a first for Hey, Boss Lady–a male guest, celebrity Tom Colicchio, head judge of the popular series Top Chef and a well-known advocate for women in the culinary world.
