Description:

Office Baggage is a podcast that “unpacks” the week of two successful corporate women. Hosted by Rae Parent and Marcy Twete, Office Baggage tackles topics that are all too often brushed under the office rug. Unafraid to take on the taboo, Marcy and Rae discuss their most frustrating moments on the corporate ladder and the topics professionals want to discuss to get ahead, understand the corporate construct and start climbing the ladder instead of holding onto a rung for dear life.

Rae and Marcy admit that sometimes….they get winded while eating. If that’s not a wake up call, we don’t know what is!

The truth is, when you’re taking care of your body, you’re probably taking better care of your...

#16 – Saving Energy for What Matters (#kidsarejerks)

7/11/2017
More
As busy professionals, our time with our children is often constrained. We want to spend the time that we have enjoying our relationship with our children but when a child acts out, we end up using our energy to address behavior issues instead. Many working parents struggle with the conflict of trying to be an outstanding employee and parent at the same time often...

#13 – Dress for the job you want?

6/13/2017
More
Today on Office Baggage, we’re addressing the difficult and sometimes controversial topic of office dress codes. Are certain things “off limits” in the workplace? Or is a dress code sexist? Rae and Marcy share their own “do’s” and “don’ts” of office attire and how they navigate judgement, slut shaming, and other frustrating topics related to women’s attire in the office. What image are you... Read More The post #13 – Dress for the job you want? appeared first on Office Baggage.

#12 – BAM….Right in the White Privilege

6/6/2017
More
Many of our prior episodes have explicitly or implicitly addressed male privilege. Today, we’re taking this taboo discussion another step by addressing the topic of white privilege. Privilege is a difficult and often controversial topic in today’s atmosphere, but what we know for sure is this: real leaders don’t shy away from their baggage, and great leaders know they always have more to learn....

Office Baggage, every week, brings you the perspective of two corporate women. Today, however, we bring you the first of what we hope will be many versions of “the panel.” Three corporate men join Rae and Marcy to discuss topics ranging from sexual harassment to “locker room talk,” from double standards for women and men to safety and judgment for both genders.

5/16/2017

A certain someone’s famous daughter wrote a book recently on “Women Who Work,” and it sparked quite the conversation on Office Baggage this week. What does it mean to be a “woman who works” and how do we support one another without being catty or selfish? In the same week, another woman testified before Congress and impressed us so much, we’ve coined the term... Read More The post #9 – Badass Sallies appeared first on Office Baggage.

So You Think You Want an MBA?

5/9/2017
More
We met last September as we began our journey through Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University’s Executive MBA program. Since then, countless people have asked us why we decided to get an MBA, what our program is like, and how others might make the same decision. Today, we’re talking through both of our journeys to B-school, the reasons we’re here, and the lesson’s... Read More The post So You Think You Want an MBA? appeared first on Office Baggage.

#7 – The Mother of All Taboos

5/2/2017
More
In today's episode, we're following up on our conversation about power for women last week. Are we more powerful than we give ourselves credit for? Then, we're taking on a big big big topic for women everywhere - motherhood. There's the old adage that an issue is easy to agree on when it's like "motherhood and apple pie." But does that adage really ring true? We don't think so. In fact, motherhood might just be one of the more controversial topics for women today. The post #7 – The Mother...

Eight months ago, we had the opportunity meet one of the most incredible women we’ve ever known. On this podcast, she’s going by the pseudonym “Nic” to protect her identity.

#5 – The Problem of Power for Women

4/25/2017
More
Women have great power. It’s inherent. Hell, we literally birth other humans! But far too often, we usurp our inherent power in small but meaningful ways. Whether in our bodies, our language, our fears or our apologies, we are the arbiters of our own power and often that means we are the destroyers of it as well. In today’s episode, we unpack the power... Read More The post #5 – The Problem of Power for Women appeared first on Office Baggage.

#4 – Bottomless Bucket of Fux

4/18/2017
More
Emotional labor (a.k.a. giving a f*ck) is the process of managing feelings and expressions as part of fulfilling the requirements of any job. Like any labor, any one individual’s ability to perform it is finite and has value (nobody has an infinite supply of f*cks to give). This week on Office Baggage, we talk about allocating our care and concern to the highest value... Read More The post #4 – Bottomless Bucket of Fux appeared first on Office Baggage.

We celebrate women who bring their whole selves to work in order to drive maximum value. . . but how much authenticity is too much? On this episode of Office Baggage, we talk about boundaries. Should Miki Agrawal have sensed that somewhere between grabbing her employee’s breasts and calling into meetings from her toilet, her actions had gone from creating a culture that destigmatizes...

For women in the corporate world, our problems are real right here at home in the U.S.of.A., but things become even more complicated when you add in cultural differences. Marcy found herself in South America this week dealing with a host of hilarious foibles.
