IAM1633 – CEO and Co-founder Creates a Community to Improve the Workplace for Women
Podcast Interview with Georgene Huang
Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: Speaking with Georgene, we love everything that she has built and grown. It's disheartening to hear the experience that she went through but we love how she took that opportunity and ran with it into her organization that's reaching over 2M women each month.

If you think about the career communities out there, LinkedIn probably comes to mind and what LinkedIn is essentially doing, It's a great company, but it's putting your face next to your resume, which means that while it's great to research who people are and understand who you're connected to, what it's really bad at doing is helping you have authentic conversations around things that you might feel less than hundred percent secure about. You're supposed to be the best version of yourself.
