44 – Allison Whalen about Parental Leave

Angela Shaw, Chief People Officer at JuiceLand, joined us on The Modern People Leader.

We talked about her non-traditional path into HR, uninviting people from the party if they can’t get behind your organization’s shared beliefs, and bucking industry norms when it’s the right thing to do.

Episode highlights:
