Shea Cuthbertson - President

Speed Round Questions

College major? Psychology

Favorite summer job/internship? I worked as a waitress at a Seaside Resort & Inn in Maine one summer.

Favorite quote/mantra? "If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun!" - Audrey Hepburn

App you can't live without? The new journal app on the most recent iPhone update.


What do you believe are the biggest challenges facing women in the workforce today?

SC: I think the biggest challenges women are facing in the workplace today are a lack of equal pay, representation in leadership roles and opportunities for advancement. They are also still being asked questions like "how much time are you dedicating to taking care of your kids vs. your husband/partner?" or "how do you manage having a career and a family?" I would be surprised if men were getting asked these same questions.

What technological advances are you most excited about?

SC: Artificial Intelligence 

What advice would you give to your younger self, and to young women getting their first full-time position?

SC: Choose a job that you like and feel purpose in doing. You devote a ton of your life to your career and being unhappy should be a non-negotiable. Life is too short to work a job you hate, report to a manager that doesn't treat you fairly or work for a company that doesn't align with your values.
