When & Where
Betsy Polk & Maggie Ellis Chotas
Since founding The Mulberry Partners coaching and consulting firm in 2003, Betsy Polk and Maggie Ellis Chotas have worked with community-focused groups, schools and universities, local governments, non-profits and healthcare providers to establish organizational cultures where trust, communication and collaboration are everyday parts of how work gets done. This work has showed them something powerful: When women work together they discover a level of support, flexibility, confidence, accountability and freedom to be themselves that they rarely find in other work relationships. Polk and Chotas drew on their own partnership and from interviews with 125 women business partners to write Power Through Partnership: How Women Lead Better Together. In the book, they demolish the myths that keep women from collaborating and offer advice for handling a host of potential challenges. They also show that when women team up—combining complementary skills, channeling their egos into the partnership, and encouraging each other—they can work as full equals to achieve something that’s exponentially greater than each woman alone.
