Part 1 of 2: A hallmark of the Office Baggage podcast is the intersection of Marcy’s Millennial perspective and Rae’s Generation X perspective. But even as a Millennial, Marcy is what some call “old” Millennials or “cusp” Millennials. Today, we’re joined by members of the “young” Millennial generation to talk to us about their experiences in the workplace. Grace and Alyx came to the table with questions for Marcy and Rae. Tune in to hear the answers to their most burning business questions and conundrums
Throughout today’s podcast we ask the question, “What kind of game are you playing?” Is your corporation playing the diversity game well? Are you thinking about your career in the right ways? And seriously, Cam Newton, what kind of sexist game are you playing? We’re tackling career objectives today with way too many football analogies!
This week, the United States experienced an incredible tragedy in Las Vegas. On this week’s podcast, we start with discussing the difficulty in talking about this tragedy both online and in person. Then, Marcy and Rae chat about diversity panels that just aren’t diverse. Today’s episode is a short, more chatty version of our normal cast. Email us with your thoughts.
It was one hell of a week for Rae and Marcy. In the most basic of terms, life handed them both a basket full of lemons. So today, they’re unpacking how women everywhere deal with weeks being sick, having health scares, and still managing to keep our lives on track….sort of. Topping it off with a new segment – the “he-peat.”
It was a sad week at Kellogg recently. The incomparable Dean Sally Blount announced she will leave Kellogg in 2018. Rae and Marcy unpack her announcement and her impact at Kellogg, inspired by her quote, “This is what the person I want to become would do.” Office Baggage loves this quote and Sally so much, we made tshirts! Find them on our website and represent your own favorite #badasssally every day. Also in today’s episode, “Sorry, Not Sorry” and “Is this still a thing?”
Throughout this podcast, there’s a thread of equality for women, but today we’re tackling it head on and from an early age. The media has blown up recently with stories about educators requiring different dress codes for girls than for their boy counterparts in school, body shaming sixth graders, and much more. Is this kind of behavior the start of what leads to inequality in the workplace and things like the infamous “Google memo” this summer? We tackle it all here.
On this week’s Office Baggage, we’re talking about the rise of female CEOs. Is there a pipeline? Can women rise to the top? Or are we kidding ourselves. And a special bonus, the first 10 minutes, these two married ladies are talking about online dating. Do you want to date “Kirby”? Email us!
Rae and Marcy admit that sometimes….they get winded while eating. If that’s not a wake up call, we don’t know what is! Both Rae and Marcy are re-vamping their health and fitness regimes this summer and “getting it together” in the way of their personal health journeys. The truth is, when you’re taking care of your body, you’re probably taking better care of your work and your career. Join us on this journey for a quick, mini episode today.
Rae and Marcy took a small hiatus during summer break, but this week, we’re official back. Imagine us singing, “We’re back….back in the podcast mood.” Today, we catch up on what happened this summer, what we’re doing during a break from school, and how we’re preparing for the busiest years of our lives. And in a much overdue version of “The Week in Mansplaining,” we’re taking to task the way Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowsi were treated surrounding John McCain’s healthcare vote. Is this just another example of men stealing women’s ideas?
Back by popular demand is our “Panel of Men.” Today, Office Baggage brings to the podcast three *new* men with three new perspectives. An Army veteran turned banker, a sales expert and a tech leader, these men have truly varied backgrounds and experiences. In addition, they’re all under 40 and we began today’s discussion with an understanding of what issues might be facing young professional men. The discussion moves from there to managing women, leading diverse teams, developing empathy skills and even “bromances.”
