Do marketing roles need to require college degrees?
In June, women’s coworking company The Wing hosted an event in its newly reopened Bryant Park space. The “fireside chat” promised a conversation between The Wing’s recently appointed executive chairwoman, Sheila Lirio Marcelo, and Fortune 500 board member Shellye Archambeau about “the challenges for women—specifically women of color—in the tech industry” and how to “create a blueprint for personal and professional success,” per the email invite.
During the chat, the topic of college education came up—specifically, if degrees are needed for leadership positions.
Perri Grinberg, VP of human resources at RAPP discusses the topic with Morning Brew.
