I admit it. I’m not your typical CEO. I’m a woman, I’m in my mid thirties and I live in a town that’s known for its “Old Boys Club”.
This was brought home to me early in my career when I went to our local business club for lunch, one of those traditional gentlemen’s clubs that now accepts women as members. I walked in with my dad, a regular there, and followed his lead to a long communal table in the middle of the room, clearly marked, “Nooners”.
