In today’s episode we spoke with the wonderful Yasmin Gagne! Yasmin is an Associate Editor at Fast Company in NY, and the co-host of the magazine’s own “Start the Ground Running” Podcast, all about how to navigate the unwritten rules of work and life. Her work focuses on Fast Company’s print magazine, although Yasmin has also written some great articles online, including an excellent piece about how “Sephora committed to devoting 15% of its shelf space to Black-owned brands.” You can find more articles from Yasmin by following the link below.
During our talk we bonded over our shared love for Brussels and our experiences as kids who grew up living across different countries. Yasmin told us the story about how she first got into writing and gave us a glimpse into the world of journalism and what it’s like working for one of the world’s top magazines. We also spoke about the impostor syndrome, the importance of cultivating a collaborative and collegiate atmosphere at work, and generally just enjoyed a really interesting chat that we hope you’ll all enjoy.
