Women are told to be nice, but not too nice. Be successful, but not too successful. Just be likeable.Join Jill for her interview with award-winning journalist and author of the book The Likeability Trap, Alicia Menendez, as they examine the impossible bind women find themselves in: to succeed, women must be competent and likeable; but the more women are seen as competent, and the more they achieve, the less likeable they become. Alicia discusses how women can let go of old rules and reimagine leadership rather than reinventing themselves.Listen and LearnWhat likeability traps areWhat the “Goldilocks Conundrum” isThe problem with focusing on women as the solutionThe need for systemic changeIdeas for where to start moving the conversation forwardHow to think about ambition during a pandemic and how to juggle the challenges of today’s difficult timesAbout Alicia MenendezAlicia MenendezAlicia Menendez is an MSNBC anchor and host of the Latina to Latina podcast.
