Even though International Women’s Day was earlier this month, we’re continuing the celebration by bringing you another mCHAT. Next up is Nancy Reardon, Chief Strategy & Product Officer, who’s discussing all things career, role models and overcoming obstacles.

Any advice you can give to a woman looking to advance in her career?

  • Bloom where you are planted.

  • Be so good that no one can ignore you and the opportunities will follow.

  • If given a “seed,” grow a garden. Be an attentive listener and add value between the lines. This means being very proactive and finding your own opportunities to shine – don’t wait for your path to be paved.

  • Don’t ever be afraid to ask questions – silence assumes you know.

  • Be comfortable with who you are.

What advice do you have for men in the workplace who want to express their advocacy for women empowerment in the workplace and aren’t sure how to start?
Stealing from Nike – “Just do it.” It’s not about male or female in my opinion, it’s about leadership, teamwork and camaraderie. Male leaders should take the same approach with women as they would for a male counterpart; some of my best colleagues and advocates have been men.

What do you like about Maestro Health?
It begins and ends with our people – Maestronites. We hire people who possess and live by our core values: teamwork, humility, urgency, bold thought, honesty, preparedness, biz-love, fun, kindness. These are attributes you simply cannot teach.

The end result is  an expressive workforce made up of diverse opinions and backgrounds. This is what makes us stronger as a company. I feel truly privileged to work at a company that values what makes us unique – as opposed to calling out why we are different.
