My guests for Episode #411 are the co-founders or “founding mothers” of the group called “Women In Lean: Our Table.” They are Crystal Davis, Karyn Ross, and Dorsey Sherman. Crystal was my guest back in episode 363 and Karyn was my guest in episode 266. Dorsey, welcome as a first-time guest!

Crystal Davis, Karyn Ross, and Dorsey Sherman

All three of them were part of this panel discussion webinar that I moderated last year. Crystal's company is The Lean Coach, Inc., Karyn's is Karyn Ross Consulting, and Dorsey's is Modele Consulting.

Topics and questions in today's episode (and related links):

  • How did the Women in Lean group get started, and why?
  • Why do they (and many women) feel like they don't have “a seat at the table”?
  • Why can “creating your own table” be helpful?
  • How can women get involved?
  • What can we do about the lack of equal representation on stage at Lean conferences?
  • How can men be better allies for women in the Lean community?

The podcast is sponsored by Stiles Associates, now in their 30th year of business. They are the go-to Lean recruiting firm serving the manufacturing, private equity, and healthcare industries. Learn more.
