Once upon a time, Georgene and Romy used to work at the same company and see each other at management meetings. But between running different departments and running home to mother young families — it was hard to connect, despite sharing much in common. We built Fairygodboss because it can be lonely for women in the workplace. Between us, we've worked in tech, media, finance, beauty, law, advertising and information services (and not always according to plan). Which means we've had to do a lot of career research, and know that a little empathy can go a long way. Our goal is to improve the workplace for all women by creating transparency about company policies and culture.
