“We partnered with Kara to help prepare over a hundred women at Cisco for a program that enables them to shadow executives from another function within the company. As part of that preparation, Kara hosted a workshop that focused on creating meaningful connections. The feedback from participants has been overwhelmingly positive, with some saying that even if they were not selected to participate in the actual shadow program, just having attended Kara’s workshop was worth it because they walked away with actionable tips and the right mindset.
Kara was able to adeptly connect industry trends, academic research, Cisco-specific information, and the personal situations or needs of our participants. This was important in helping people draw the connections between what’s happening at the macro level and what they then need to make happen for themselves.”
