Mentorship Is Key To Building A Successful Career for Women in Marketing

No matter what industry you are in learning from other leaders’ experience is invaluable. Women especially stand to gain by associating with other women leaders in marketing. When done properly, a mentor can help women navigate career decisions, provide insights into other people’s leadership styles, and help propel them in the right direction. 

A mentor can help women narrow their focus and niche into an appropriate marketing discipline as experience is gained. Many corporations have mentorship programs, so Tricia recommends check with the HR department before reaching out to individuals directly. There are also programs through LinkedIn and LeanIn.org where women can find join a local LeanIn Circle and build strong relationships with other women.

How Women Can Gain Visibility Early In Their Career

Visibility is a key component of reaching higher levels of leadership in an organization, but the question is, how should women in marketing make themselves more visible? Tricia recommends finding projects to work on that showcase your skills and your leadership ability. Also, offer to help members of the leadership staff with tasks and projects that they are working on.

Becoming visible requires time and a willingness to put in good hard work, but the return on that time usually pays off. By offering your time and skills, reaching out to other women in the organization, and making yourself available, you are showing your willingness to learn and grow. That drive and need to succeed will get you noticed.

What Does It Mean To Be “Stratactical” As Women In Marketing

Tricia has come up with her own word to describe an affliction that affects many women in the workforce. Women typically have a “do it all myself” mentality but need to learn to delegate tasks and think strategically while executing tactical details. A certain level of hands-on is needed to show that you can do the work, but remember that not every task is tactical, some are administrative.

Women in marketing looking to be effective women leaders in marketing can only get to that pinnacle if they learn how to distinguish career priorities. Tricia warns that the more tasks you take on, the more your organization will put on your plate, but becoming a leader does not mean taking on every task. Think strategically about your career as well as the needs of your organization and execute those tactical moves needed to get you to your goals.

Properly Navigating Workplace Culture Leads To Greater Opportunity

Every organization has a vibe to its company culture that influences behavior and action in the workplace. Aside from linking up with a credible and invested mentor, understanding and navigating the culture in your organization will help women propel forward in their career. Attempt to understand the organization’s culture and model actions and decisions accordingly.

Finding a mentor, understanding workplace culture, making yourself visible, and learning how to be stratactical are the keys to successfully becoming a woman of leadership in marketing. Tricia’s final advice for women in marketing is to be authentic, recognize your value within an organization, and realize when you’re the one holding yourself back. If you don’t have the skills needed for a role, learn them, and be enthusiastic about the drive to learn. Marketing needs women in leadership roles, and the roles are there. Follow Tricia’s advice to help you – and other women in your life – enjoy a fulfilling career in marketing.
