It’s no secret that only in the past 10-15 years have women started breaking through the patriarchal standards that kept any of us with aspirations that exceeded “Girl Friday” out of the room.
It is with respectful gratitude to those mighty women who came on the scene early and refused to be hidden in a corner that we are now reaching into the highest echelons of business and politics.
Barbara Kline is just such a fierce and audacious woman. The first woman in a majority of the great rooms of the tech industry having stood tall and looked right in the face of questions like, “but what if you get pregnant” or the rebuffs of, “you’ll be taking the job away from a man who has a wife and kids to support.” Questions and statements that are purely unimaginable to the millennial and Gen-Z women of today’s business world.
Tune in for this conversation between Barbara and Lesley of those early days and the ones that followed when during the .com crash, Barbara naturally transitioning into entrepreneurship, founding numerous companies. And ultimately starting another entirely new career in her 60’s.
