S3E3 – Women Are Ready to Run for Something! A Conversation with Cassandra Gaddo

Our first guest on Season 3 of Office Baggage is a dear friend and a true feminist activist we can all learn from, Cassandra Gaddo. In today’s political climate, women running for office is both a hot topic and a lightning rod. We dive deep with Cassandra on topics like “the myth of electability,” and unpack her career transition from the Executive Director of a nonprofit to becoming Director of People & Operations at Run for Something. Cassandra shares her thoughts on interviewing, working from home, diversity, equity, inclusion, and much more.
