Jessica Bacal- Mistakes I Made at Work: 25 Influential Women Reflect on What They Got Out of Getting It Wrong

This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Jessica Bacal. The original live interview was 11/13/15.

Today’s women are being told to “lean in,” to assert themselves, to ask for more, and to analyze their work/life balance. But despite all of this dialogue, there’s something that is not being addressed: advice on how to recover when you’ve stumbled.

Everyone makes mistakes, but for many women, acknowledging them can feel tantamount to career suicide. In Mistakes I Made at Work, I interview twenty-five high-achieving and influential women across a variety of fields—from writers to doctors to engineers.  They share their worst on-the-job moments, and how they used them as learning experiences to build successful and fascinating careers.

Jessica directs the Wurtele Center for Work & Life at Smith College, an independent women’s college in Massachusetts with students from every state and from 60 countries around the world.
