Julie Kratz is a highly-acclaimed leadership trainer who has led teams and produced results in corporate America for nearly two decades. After experiencing her own career “pivot point,” Julie developed a process to help women leaders create their winning career game plan.
Focused on promoting gender equality in the workplace and encouraging women with their “what’s next” moments, Julie is a frequent keynote speaker and executive coach. She holds an MBA from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University and is a Certiﬁed Master Coach. Julie is the author of Pivot Point: How to Build a Winning Career Game Plan and ONE: How Male Allies Support Women for Gender Equality.
In today’s conversation, we discuss the landscape of gender equality in the workplace, why the women’s movement hasn’t progressed further along to date, and how men can support and promote women in leadership roles. We explore the difference between sponsoring and mentoring, the benefits of having male allies, the impact on performance and profitability within companies, and practical steps men and women can take to foster gender equality so everyone wins.
While Julie is a die-hard feminist, she also recognizes that having discussions with women only behind closed doors and leaving the men out of the conversation will not work to create the gender equality women are looking for. Instead, working together to transform paradigms and eliminate unconscious biases is where the work must be done. Julie provides an excellent road map to follow, along with the tools to have honest cross-gender conversations that support all parties.
