Episode 14: Interview with Eileen who Dropped Out of School at 18 to Raise Her Daughter

At age 18, Eileen started her career by making a conscious decision to drop out of college when she became pregnant with her daughter.  She tells us the story of how she navigated being a single mom while climbing the corporate ladder without a degree.  Eileen talks about feeling “less than”, but also finding advocates who pushed her outside her comfort zone and encouraged her to succeed.  Eileen is the author of “In The Company of Men: How Women Can Succeed in a World Built Without Them”.
