Podcast: Pamela Ryckman on Women Networking Outside the Company

Photo of Pamela Ryckman, author of Stiletto NetworkOn a recent American Management Association podcast, Pamela Ryckman, author of Stiletto Network: Inside the Women’s Power Circles That Are Changing the Face of Business discussed how women form networking groups and achieve success.

Traditionally men have dominated the C-suite with one token spot open for a woman, if that. This made it nearly impossible for women to network within their organization as, at the end of the day, only one of them would get the corner office. This forced women to network outside their companies, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise: women made different connections that led to unexpected lateral career moves, paving their own way to success. Pamela Ryckman, author of the book Stiletto Network, investigated this trend and talks about how modern women network and achieve success, starting from the entry level to moving up.
