Meet the Women Behind MarketHer
"I’m a Senior Strategist here at IMPACT. I’m a mom of three and the wife to a radio personality here in Philly. While both our jobs can be demanding, we love our careers in the creative industry. Balancing all that with three kids, however, is why I’m doing this show.
I still have things to learn, but also have things to share on how I’ve figured it out thus far. My vision for this show is to create a safe place for everyone, especially women, to share their challenges and successes on balancing work life. We all don’t do it perfectly, but you may have a gem of a tip that will save someone’s life - literally and figuratively."
"Hi everyone! I’m the Director of Client Services here at IMPACT in my day job, and wife and dog mom every other minute of the day. This show is important to me because as I’ve grown in my career, I’ve realized there really are unique challenges women face and not a ton of resources (other than generic self-help) to help us figure it all out. I want this show to be an outlet for anyone who experiences those challenges so they can relate and hopefully learn new strategies and tactics for how to deal.
My long-term vision would be for us to build a community of strong men and women who can help change the social norms that put us in these challenges the first place. But first things first, check out our first episode :)"
"Hi, there! I’m Britt Schwartz, a 30-ish homeschooling mom of 5 and a Senior Strategist at IMPACT. My life isn’t conventional and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
MarketHer is something I’m extremely passionate about because throughout my career in creative agencies and in client-facing roles, I’ve experienced situations and challenges that I wish I would have a place to turn to that would have made me feel not alone and to find real solutions."
