Ep #194: Advancing Your Career through Community with Cate Luzio

One of the biggest factors determining your success at reaching the executive suite is:

Your community.


🤝 The members of the executive suite you’ve built relationships with

🤝 The mentors who are always in your corner

🤝 The professional groups you’re involved in

🤝 The panels you speak at

🤝 And the coaching programs you’ve joined

Being in community with supportive people you admire is part of the foundation you need to reach and thrive at the executive level.

So if you’re ready to invest more into your relationships at your organization (and beyond), you’re going to love this conversation with Cate Luzio.

Cate is the Founder and CEO of Luminary, a global membership-based professional education and networking platform (with more than 10,000 members!) on a mission to uplift, upskill, and propel women forward through all phases of their professional journey.

In this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, Cate and I discuss her mission behind creating Luminary, her personal journey as a leader, and super practical tips for getting the most out of your relationships at work.

Let’s dive in.
