Lindsay Kaplan and Carolyn Childers were killing it as startup VPs. But as they put it: it gets lonely at the top. Especially for women. Enter: their company, Chief, a women’s exec network that takes networking beyond sticky name tags and awkward icebreakers. This week, we sat down with the Chief co-founders who tell us that everyone – even those with unconventional skill sets – has a place in a business.

In this episode, Lindsay and Carolyn share:

  • The moment Lindsay realized a network like Chief needed to exist
  • Carolyn’s unconventional rise to becoming an entrepreneur
  • The conflict that taught them the importance of always assuming best intent
  • How Chief thrived during the pandemic by democratizing access for members
  • Advice on how to take networking to the next level and develop meaningful work relationships
