Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others.

    I had a good conversation with the Head of Talent where we talked about the growth of Virtru and what recruiting would be like. I was scheduled to meet with the Head of Finance next but was informed last minute that he needed to reschedule.

    I followed up multiple times and never received a response. I was just ghosted. Not a great candidate experience.
