About the Show

In this series, Slate executive editor Allison Benedict will ask other women in charge about the nitty-gritty details of their work lives—what do they do every day, how do they do it, and how are things changing for women in their fields? How does Aline Brosh McKenna, the showrunner of TV’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, make personnel decisions? How does Toronto restaurateur Jen Agg grow a successful business? How does StubHub president Sukhinder Singh Cassidy make herself available to the company’s employees?
