Multi-hyphenate and super sister Dr. Melanie Hicks, Central Florida, has built an incredible career across numerous fields and joins us to share her wisdom on women in the workforce. Mel recently launched her own publishing house to help people tell their stories. She takes a glance at what the workforce looks like for women post-pandemic, given the shifts to work and life balance. Mel discusses the “psychological contract” women make regarding the expectations we bring into the workplace and how to build bravery to make changes to their careers. She also discusses her “3 E” method of making change: Excavate your Attic, Eliminate your Obligations and Embolden your Resolve. She reminds us that women in particular “own the keys to the cages we keep ourselves in.” Look for more from this dynamic Delta and her upcoming book!
