Becca Apfelstadt, the co-founder and CEO of Treetree, is a woman at the top – but unlike many others, she isn't alone.
In fact, all of the leadership team at the special projects company are female.
"We have an all female leaderships team," she said. "And its not that we decided upfront that thats how it should be – it's just how it happened to be.""I think that there is an area that can be brought on from having an all-female leadership team that creates a little more empathy and help and guidance from the idea of young working parents being a part of our team."
I recently chatted with Apfelstadt for Women of Influence, our bi-weekly podcast in which we hear from some of the most successful female executives in Columbus. Our full conversation will be released next Friday.
