Show Notes

It’s a story as told as time—man studies hard, gets a great job at his dream company, gets to leave home and live abroad as he grows in his career. Now let’s replace “man” with woman, and reimagine that journey of growing and leading a team in a corporate office as a woman of color in a foreign country. 

Namita started her journey working with LinkedIn in India, and quickly worked her way up and became a force to reckon with, going on to Head the client solutions department. Her stellar growth led her to move from the only home she’d known all her life, to a new country with only her husband to accompany her through that journey. Navigating life and work in a new, cosmopolitan country, without much of a support system is undoubtedly a daunting task. 

Join us today, as we talk about how Namita uncovered the power of network and community with Women @ LinkedIn, and her plans to give back to that very community as the new Co-Chair of the committee for EMEA and LATAM!
