Dr. Marcia Clark is an orthopedic surgeon, healthcare leader, and Health Tech Advisor who strategically applied the lessons from her surgical career to support her confidence as she transitions into the space of supporting women in Tech. Although she feels less comfortable in this space, she has used the RISE Framework to support her transition and interactions with those who have worked in this field significantly longer. Both fields are male dominated and she has risen to the challenge to support other women in navigating success in this arena. It is my pleasure to speak about our conversation with you!
I am constantly amazed with the breadth of Marcia’s professional networks. In fact, she refers to herself as a network weaver. Every interaction she undertakes is set against the backdrop of intentionally looking for and forming new networks. In fact, in the short time we have known each other she has introduced me to Alice Reimer, Founder of The 51 and Deborah Rosati, Founder and CEO of Women Get On Board Inc. She is the perfect example of someone who is constantly building personal Boards of Directors, something that we speak about as key in our Confidence for Professional Women Course! Think about your own networks. Have you been intentional in growing them to support your confidence journey and professional success?
The most intriguing thing about Marcia is her strength in developing and using frameworks to support her success. She has successfully incorporated our unique RISE framework in her transition from orthopedic surgeon and healthcare leader to upcoming successful Health Tech Advisor. In walking into a difficult meeting, as the chair she has RECOGNIZED her strengths and ENVISIONED success. Through supporting her own success, she will be able to continue to work to form networks that promote success for other professional women, perhaps even for someone like yourself!
We hope you will take the time to listen to Marcia’s reflections in Episode seven of the Women with Confidence Podcast.
