Lauren von Stackelberg and Maya Prabhu: Women Working In Male Dominated Industries (Part 1)
According to a Pew Research survey, about 4 in 10 employed women say they have experienced some form of gender discrimination at work. But for women who work in male dominated fields —which includes workplaces with 25 percent or less women— gender inequality can be particularly difficult to navigate.
In a two-part special series on The Fix podcast, we’ll be unpacking the challenges women face in male-dominated industries. In this week’s episode, we have the pleasure of hearing from Maya Prabhu, Managing Director and Head of Wealth Advisory at J.P.

On this episode, we will learn about the barriers women face in the field of financial services and the far-reaching impact this has. We will also unpack solutions and strategies that all of us can use to tackle the issue.
