Ep. 47: Kristy Wallace, President of Ellevate Network, Loves Working to Close the Gender Achievement Gap in Business
"For me, I was always putting myself last and that had its implications on my mental health and my physical health. Starting to really put yourself first sounds so bad to say, but it's not, because the healthier and happier you are the better parent and spouse and boss and worker you are. It doesn't have to be all-consuming, but just take some time for yourself. Pick what is fulfilling to you and do it."
Kristy Wallace is President of Ellevate Newtwork, a global professional women's network with the mission of closing the gender achievement gap in business. She also hosts the Ellevate Podcast, having "conversations with women changing the face of business."
