What If You Became Friends with Your Competition?

What If You Became Friends with Your Competition?

In the lead up to International Women's Day and during Women's History Month, you'll probably hear a variation of the phrase 'women supporting women' over and over again. But this feel-good trope is more than just a generic cliché or convenient marketing buzz term. It's a real, tangible and invaluable way to thrive in your career. And our host, Avery Francis, is proof.

On this episode of Girlboss Radio, Avery invites two of her close friends and confidants: Dr. Sarah Saska and Shavonne Hasfal-McIntosh. Dr. Sarah is a former academic who started her own DE&I consultancy firm called Feminuity. Shavonne the director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Wealthsimple.

Given their jobs, Sarah and Shav *could* be in competition with Avery, who helms her own DE&I workplace consultancy. Instead, the three have chosen to be friends—the kind of friends who can share in the frustrations, struggles and sticky moments they face in their industry.

This episode gets into Shav and Sarah's career journeys, their approach to job hopping and why the secret to a successful career comes down to finding your own magic sauce.
