When I was 28, I found myself one late night on the Greek Island of Antiparos. It was past midnight and I was sitting on a homemade wooden chair outside a small but cozy shack with two people who, in all honesty, I didn’t know. She was a female neurosurgeon from Norway and he was an elderly Greek farmer who spoke broken English and who had made the chairs we sat in. This would be the best night of my life.

It’s such an exciting time for us behind the scenes. We love looking at the talented and ambitious women who apply every year. By the time we see an application, we know they are the women brave enough to have a conversation with their boss or advocate about their futures and take the initiative to get it done.
The time is coming where we say goodbye to our incredible group of International campers in #GirlsClub Summer Camp and move into preparation for the Generation 3 certification cohort. It also means Generation 2 superstars, who enjoyed extended camp instead of our finale conference (thank you, COVID), are also leaving the nest. That was hard to type.
What an honor to be asked to speak to the Computer Futures Dell Women’s Group. Breaking the Glass Ceiling’s Elizabeth Lam gathered a fantastic moderator Stephanie Herrera, along with panelists Lysa Miller and Meshell Baker, to help the women of Dell network to get ahead while working from home.
Month 1 of Summer Camp is in the books! If you’re new here, Summer Camp is #GirlsClub’s free 3-month sample of our program and an extension for our Generation 2 graduates who lost the chance to connect with their co-participants and mentors at our in-person finale conference.
Thirty minutes ago we closed our 90-person zoom #GirlsClub Generation 2 Finale Celebration.
I’m incredibly proud of the work the women and men did this year in our 6-month virtual cohort, scan below for some incredible stats, standouts, and spotlights.
“I never asked!”
Margaret Arakawa, CMO at Outreach shared a phenomenal story at her company’s “Gals in Sales” event in Seattle. In her previous role at Microsoft, she was asked to interview candidates to be her new boss. But halfway through the process, she realized, “I can do this job.”
Meet Carrie Jeffrey, Account Development Manager at 360Insights. I had the honor of meeting Carrie last month at the Unleash conference in San Diego. She attended the #GirlsClub Women in Sales breakfast where I learned of her unconventional journey to sales leadership. I was inspired by her courage and confidence and excited when she agreed to share her story with our community. Enjoy!
Patti Baumgartner joined #GirlsClub as a Protege this year and we are thrilled to have her! She has immersed herself in the the program and has really stood out during our live training sessions. She is quick to share her experience and application of the skills being learned and multiple proteges have commented on how helpful she has been during and outside of the live trainings.
