A must-listen for any administrator, manager, or educator, and especially meaningful for woman-identifying practitioners, Women at Work provides deep dives into the experiences of women in the labor force and the particular complexities of their roles at work. Whether it is an episode dedicated to conflict resolution, sexism in the workplace, entrepreneurship, or the role of women on boards of trustees, there is something for every educator, at every stage of their career, looking to reflect on their role in their organization and on the best ways to optimize their talents. The podcast is also helpful for any manager who supervises women, as it details the structural biases that can often shape educational and corporate environments and provides practical skills and frameworks for improving communication, efficiency, and creativity. “The Amys” provide an incredible resource for listeners keen to improve their work environment and layer in personal experiences of women at work. There are nine seasons to explore, and topics range from the specific (“ADHD is Different for Women”) to the broad (“How to Manage”), with each episode including personal stories and time-tested advice.
