  • women take up just 4.9% of the top positions and organizations across 13 countries.

  • These positions include chairman of the board, CEO, CEO and CFO.

  • Outside of that, the chief of HR 62% of those positions belong to women.

  • Sounds a little better, doesn't it?

  • Let's take a closer look.

  • 71% of all HR positions are held by women, so 71 out of 100 positions in HR are held by women.

  • However, as we move up in the career ladder, the percentage of women holding those positions goes down toe.

  • Add salt to the wound.

  • In 2017 the list of 100 HR influencers was published Onley.

  • Two women were in the top 20.

  • They got craft dear.

  • The following year they stopped putting them in numerical order.

  • 35 women made it to the top list of 100.

  • I want to explain to you what that feels like.

  • I think of a group of women deciding to build a house.

  • They picked the location.

  • They meticulously choose the materials.

  • They paint the walls, they install the carpet, they wire the house for electricity.

  • And when the very last task that needs to be done to complete the house is to screw in the light bulb that is just slightly out of their reach.

  • They scrapped the whole project, and they give the keys to a man who has a ladder.

  • That's what that feels like.

  • Why can't women breakthrough the ceilings of the houses that they helped build?

  • Here's my story.

  • By my senior year of high school was working full time.

  • I would take my four classes, I would go to the gym, I would take a nap and then I would go work my 4 p.m. To midnight shift at the bowling alley.

  • I don't know if that was legal, but I didn't question it.

  • I had the money to afford my prom, my car and my cap and gown.

  • When I turned 18 I moved out of my house.

  • I did not qualify for financial aid, and so off to corporate America.

  • I went as a bank teller.

  • That position eventually lead to a license.

  • Personal banker and I was really good, like really good.

  • I chose to find out who were the top producers in that company.

  • All males, of course, and I took them all out to lunch.

  • I picked their brains and figured out all the strategies on how to close business.

  • I received my life in annuities license in April of that year, the same year that I was a second highest producer in the entire company.

  • Despite my four month disadvantage, I was 20 years old at the time.

  • But, of course, us millennials.

  • My heart was somewhere else.

  • I really wanted a position in professional sports.

  • I took an assistant coaching job at a high school, which eventually led to me doing some projects for leagues outside of the country, which eventually led to me.

  • Meeting an N b.

  • A executive.

  • I landed an internship with an N b A team during the summer.

  • My job would not allow me to comply.

  • So off I went.

  • I left my cushy job and I did this internship in Las Vegas over the summer.

  • They were really happy with my performance, how I was able to analyze data and statistics for the players that they were trying to scout.

  • However, they came to me and they said I needed a college degree in order to work for the N B a full time, so I thought, OK, I'll go get my job back because I was awesome and I'll go to school and I'll get my degree right.

  • Wrong.

  • This was 2009.

  • This was during the financial crisis in the bubble exploded all over my face.

  • Financial institutions were hit the hardest, so I found another coaching job with a high school.

  • And then I also learned how to officiate basketball.

  • And so I did both of those things while going to school full time.

  • Once I had that enough credits to start looking for a four year university.

  • I used my connections again and was offered a director of basketball operations position for a university out of state.

  • I was thrilled.

  • Not only would I have a job that I wanted, I'll get to finish my degree, but they also pay for the tuition of their staff.

  • And then I got pregnant.

  • I couldn't leave the state after that.

  • I also couldn't referee anymore because I started to look like a basketball myself.

  • And so my daughter entered the world.

  • I took care of her in the daytime, and then I would referee and coach at night to make ends meet.

  • After about a year and 1/2 I decide it was time for me to go back to work.

  • I started working for a staffing firm where I was a recruiter.

  • One of my clients at the time offered me a more stable position as an office manager.

  • I worked really hard at that job.

  • I was managing an office of 30 full time employees.

  • I was the only senior manager in the entire company.

  • Within six months, I have filled 15 full time positions, and I had also been given a 30% raise.

  • I eventually dove a lot deeper and started putting together a lot of the employee related documents, and then they started launching other businesses within that portfolio.

  • This was also an all male investment group.

  • Once I had submerged myself in this HR manager position, I figured out that it left me with very little time to pick my daughter up, bring her home, feed her, bathe her and put her to bed.

  • I knew I needed a change.

  • I knew that if I was going to do well for this company that I was going to have to be in a very good personal space To do that after a couple of failed attempts at getting them to change their policy and give me a schedule change I put in my 30 days resignation, I decided I was going to be an Independence HR consultants.

  • Oh, okay.

  • I did HR for a whole two days, and now I want to go start a company full time doing HR.

  • Such a millennial you are not qualified, is what I would tell myself.

  • I didn't have a degree.

  • I didn't have the certifications and I didn't have the experience.

  • Or didn't I?

  • Let's reflect.

  • In high school, I worked full time and graduated with a 3.8 g p.

  • A.

  • I would say I can manage my time.

  • Well, I'm resourceful.

  • Then I refereed high school and college basketball.

  • No one likes referees.

  • I would say I can diffuse intense situations, make quick decisions and enforce rules.

  • I was the top producer and one of the largest financial institutions in California.

  • I can analyze numbers in data and I can educate.

  • I coached a high school girls team up to 15 girls.

  • Basketball.

  • You don't know the wrath of periods until you coach high school girls, I would say the ability to recruit, manage and develop large teams and winning and having emergency chocolate on hand.

  • Aside from all of that, I thrived in male dominated fields such as investment, banking and basketball.

  • I had hustle, and so because I was egotistical at the time, I decided to pitch.

  • My new service is to my current employer.

  • Before I left, it works.

  • On my last day of work on October 28 2016 I had a full book of business.

  • 18 months later, one of my clients told me that they're engaging in an equity transaction and they would need my help managing the due diligence process.

  • What?

  • So I knew it was time to level up once again, including my wife.

  • I speed Google and YouTube were my besties.

  • So what?

  • Waas mill period violations in California became what is due diligence and a Buddha for Dummies.

  • After two months, the transaction was successful.

  • The partners of that company offered me investment to expand my business, so I went from employees service provider.

  • It's a partner, their first female partner.

  • These guys are exponentially more thoughtful, supportive and aware of their female and parent employees.

  • Now their companies are happy, equitable and productive.

  • A bunch of guys invested in one woman and that one woman was able to make just a big enough impact to improve the working conditions for all the women in all their companies.

  • If you want the seat at that table or you want to own that house, you have to hustle and you have to learn.

  • And you have to be uncomfortable sometimes standing in a room with a bunch of guys every day, working with them, collaborating with them, educating them.

  • Women have the gift of nurture, instinct and compassion.

  • But if we want those top positions, we still have to learn from these guys.

  • We can't run away from them.

  • I've tried.

  • They're everywhere.

  • Realistically, they're still at the top of many companies and at the top of many departments.

  • But if we can join them, educate them and inspire them to stand up for their sisters, they will see that companies with women in leadership roles results in higher revenue, larger profits and a healthy company culture.

  • In fact, companies with more women in leadership can be up to 69% more profitable.

  • Let me tell you what that means In guy language, a company that generates $10 million a year will have profits of, say, $3 million with women on the board that $3 million can increase up to $5.1 million.

  • Um, I'm that good.

  • Listen, I envision a world where I don't have to be tagged as a boss, babe and a girl boss and a she e o and a woman pra newer.

  • No, no, I am a CEO, and I am an entrepreneur.

  • I envision a world.

  • Were comments like she's really good for a girl cease to exist.

  • It's like when I'm walking through my gym with my now seven year olds and someone comes up to me and they say, I didn't know you had a kid like Yeah, yeah, you know, you're in pretty good shape for having a kid want.

  • That is not a compliment.

  • I envision a world were men are not on Lee choosing women to lead with them, but choosing women to be led by If we feel like we are in a position where we can't beat them, maybe it's because we stopped building, We got uncomfortable.

  • We didn't ask for help and we handed over the keys.

  • If we can get men to join us on this journey, we can get out the hammer.

  • We can remove the nails from the ceiling and we can show them a new way to build a better way.

  • And then they become us.

  • And together women will rise to Not on Lee Breakthrough higher ceilings.

  • But I own the house is that they helped build.

  • Thank you.
