Welcome to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for corporate women who want to get promoted, be sought out for their expertise and be paid appropriately for their impact.
The name on everybody’s lips is ‘Barbie’.
If you haven’t yet seen the new Barbie movie, I’d don your bright pink top and book a ticket quick.
Barbie is fast-becoming the highest grossing movie of 2023, hauling US$1BILLION in just over 2 weeks at the box office and is already the highest grossing movie directed by a female director (Greta Gerwig).
Unsurprisingly, it has got a lot of women - and men - talking… and for good reason.
In this episode I am sharing all my (many!) observations about the story, characters, gender stereotypes, challenging unfair expectations and THAT scene where Barbie is told to 'get back in her box'...
Hi, I am a Career & Personal Branding Expert and I coach corporate women to get promoted, and paid appropriately, faster.
Gender discrimination is everywhere (despite it being the 21st century). Progress is being made but in many places, it is slow.
To advance in your career - and indeed in life - it’s really important that we women don’t internalise that discrimination. In other words, that we don’t adopt those discriminatory and sexist views as our own.
As Ken reminds us all, you are Kenough.
And you are: you’re more than qualified, smart enough and ready enough and if you aren’t getting the support you need to succeed, find other ways and opportunities to get it.
At Illuminate, we coach corporate women to see them get promoted, paid appropriately and own their value. Connect with me or download one of our most loved tools here (to help you get promoted faster).
