n the months leading up to Shoptalk Meetup for Women, the Shoptalk team is producing an Original Content series on The State of Women Working in Retail that explores four phases of women’s leadership in retail.
Our first phase, Where We Are, examined the overall landscape for women working in retail. Over the next three weeks, we’ll focus on How We Got Here by highlighting career success stories from some of the industry’s most inspirational leaders.
Shoptalk spoke with Monica Turner about her 30-plus year career at Procter & Gamble, from her start as an intern through her first leadership role to today. Monica’s inspirational career journey motivates her personal mission to mentor and sponsor the next generation of female leaders.
