Our new Women in Tech podcast debuts alongside our Fortune Best Workplaces for Women recognition.
We’re excited and humbled to share that HashiCorp was included on the 2023 Great Place to Work and Fortune Magazine’s Best Workplaces for Women. This is HashiCorp’s second time being named to the Great Place to Work list, and since the award is determined through employee feedback, we want to extend our thanks to all of the HashiCorp employees who shared their valuable input.
To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place To Work analyzed the survey responses of more than 600,000 women who work for Great Place To Work Certified companies. The survey covers areas such as trust in management, communication, respect, well-being, opportunities for growth, and more.
To celebrate our recognition by Fortune and Great Place to Work, we’re launching a podcast series aimed at empowering women and others to enable change and help diversify technical organizations.
Each month on the new HashiCast podcast series, Women in Tech, HashiCorp hosts Kelly Kitagawa and Sarah Polan sit down with guests to share real-world stories, lessons learned, and practical advice for growing your career. You’ll hear about the challenges women face in the tech industry, inspirational career wins, and actionable strategies to hire and retain technical women. The podcast was centered around the blog 4 secrets for hiring and retaining technical women they co-wrote earlier this year.
Sigal is an award-winning Chief Information Officer (CIO) and former International CIO and Head of Digital Transformation at Morgan Stanley. She currently serves on two public company boards, ADT Inc. and HashiCorp as well as GoDaddy.
This episode explores the challenges and misconceptions that many women in technology and leadership face — and how they can upend the status quo. Listeners will gain a holistic view of career progression, including how to deal with setbacks and the importance of self-care, as Sigal shares her journey and learnings to help tech professionals break through barriers in the industry.
Tune in as she shares her journey, discusses the negotiation of promotions (11:47) and setting career goals (17:50). You’ll learn lessons from the unspoken rules (26:21), the gender dynamics that have shaped Sigal's exceptional career (21:59), and the importance of mentors, sponsors, and allies (8:18).
We also have planned guests for November through January. Read the episode previews below:
