"I had moved up in my organizations and reached an executive level where I didn’t have a lot of women around me who really understood what my role was like. It was important for me to have friendships, mentors, contacts, people that I could really speak to about some of the challenges that I was experiencing and understand what my opportunities were going to be."

Barrie Scardina

Head of Real Estate for North America, Cushman and Wakefield

“Chief is a different kind of support system. The most surprising thing for me is the vulnerability with which these women come to the table. They share their unvarnished, truthful stories. We just started talking about things beyond the workplace, about our personal lives, and some challenges of being a very senior level executive [while] being a mother and a wife. We’ve really helped each other to be bigger, better, bolder, faster. Not just in our workplaces, but outside of them."

Michelle Gadsden-Williams

Managing Director & Global Head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, BlackRock

“Chief has given me a real group of peers, who can talk to me on a regular basis about what they’re going through, and what I’m going through. We can push each other forward in ways that have been surprising and frankly very rewarding.

Chief Transformation Officer, Grant Thorton
