Empowered Women: Yoselin Bugallo on How to Make Others Value Your Career

Your gift for the International Women’s Day is here!

As women, we often have to convince others of the value of our careers. How do we find balance and draw boundaries in our personal and professional lives?

This episode of “Empowered Women Empower Women,” is with Yoselin Bugallo, the Director of Admissions at the NYU Stern School of Business. As a specialist in career development, Yoselin has learned a variety of lessons over the years—and one piece of advice that stood out to her was that who you choose as your life partner is one of the most important decisions you make in your career.

We’re trained to look at our life in buckets that we keep separate. Everyone has a career bucket, which we’re told shouldn’t mix with our personal bucket. But we don’t really live in buckets. What happens in our personal lives and in our support systems reflects on our career. Surrounding yourself with a support system that can pitch in when you ask for help can be the framework for a great career.

Enjoy your gift and share it with others!

Empowered Women: Naheed Chowdhry Speaking about Speaking Up

Happy Women’s Day to all empowered women and the ones aspiring to be one!

Ever thought, why do so many of us find it hard to speak up? And what can we do to make our voices heard without being perceived wrongly?

The first episode of “Empowered Women Empower Women,” is with Naheed Chowdhry, the founder of iWill. With a focus on gender equality in the workplace, iWill helps augment, not reinvent, the gender-disparity policies of global leaders.

Naheed emphasizes that the best way to shift the mindsets of others is a mix of data and empathy. It’s only when something becomes personal that you can feel the impact and the desire to change your unconscious behavior. She also points to the benefits of safe spaces, where you can open up and discuss experiences without being judged.

When you have an idea, it’s important to have your voice heard. Communication is the one tool that can enable the creation of so many bridges. So talk with facts. Try to remove the opinion. If someone’s questioning what you’re saying, use data and ask for examples from them.

Celebrate this Women’s Day with listening to Naheed’s effective framework for communication and sharing that gift with women you want to empower!
