Lots of great responses to that thread last week on putting women in charge. Thank you.

Couple of takeaways. First, there are a lot of places with women leaders and good policies who feel like it's not left them swimming in candidates. Two possible reasons:

1) nobody knows about you! You need to talk and post about the ways you are trying to solve the problems everyone hates. And not just your successes; it's way more effective to post your failures and what you learned.

2) there's something else toxic you don't know about

Only you can divine which it truly is. Assume both are true and start there.

But there are so, so, so many people who crave a safe, diverse environment with high trust and autonomy, and many will give up massive salaries and prestige just to get it.
