32. How to become a Power Couple with Dr. Vanessa and Pat Sweet

by | Mar 25, 2021

Both parents are in leadership roles; they love their careers, have kids, and have a strong marriage. You’ve probably seen people like this and wonder how they do it all. In this episode, we interviewed Dr. Vanessa and Pat Sweet, who have been redefining gender roles as professionals and parents since they started dating in university. 

They shared the process that allowed them to both rise to leadership while navigating multiple moves. The biggest takeaway from this interview: when you’re aligned personally, you can rise faster professionally. This was recorded live as part of our International Women’s Day series called Rising to the Challenge: Taking on the social norms and stereotypes that impede careers and business. 

After listening to this conversation, you will be armed with the skills to see beyond your next role and change your perspective to see roadblocks as new opportunities.
