General Motors CEO Mary Barra has taken on many tasks at the automaker, but one of them has been to ensure women receive more representation in the workplace.
Not just any jobs, but leadership roles, engineering roles and prominent spots in hot industries to propel the careers of the future forward. Barra sat down alongside Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and both discussed and dished out advice to women looking to climb the ranks.
Specifically, both echoed a similar thought: jump in and don’t remain on the outside. By being actively involved with projects and taking on tasks, both female executives felt it’s absolutely necessary to showcase value in an organization. Of course, hard work and proper education also help significantly.
