There Is Power in Women Supporting Each Other in the Workplace

Having programs for women in the workplace is considered table stakes for most companies, but in order to drive meaningful progress, more needs to be done. Cynthia Barnes and Jennifer Miranda from American Airlines discuss their experiences and the benefits from being a part of their company’s women’s leadership programs as well as the impact that formal and informal mentorship has had on their personal and professional growth, and how women can continue to support each other at any level in the organization.
