For the past few weeks we’ve been talking about how to build yourself+ through building others.

I’ve been pushing against the conventional wisdom that for us women, moving forward in your professional path means pushing past others to get there.

I got a chance this week to speak with Tamara Roy, president of the Boston Society of Architects, and principal at design and engineering firm Stantec about her philosophy of using her leadership role to “hold the door open” for women coming up behind her.

Tamara is a friend of the workshop and joins us to talk about how to ‘play the game’ while changing the rules and making a better professional culture for women. Today she gives us insight into how she tries to share credit, build a workplace culture that celebrates healthy work-life boundaries and uses her position as a platform for other women.
