Advice:How To Climb The Ladder

posted June 28th, 2011 by Janet Graham - Leave a Comment

This is another piece of advice from the series “Advice:How to Climb the Ladder” which was written by Janet McFarland as part of the October 2010 series by the Globe and Mail which comprised a number of articles about Women in Power. The component written by Ms McFarland comprised advice from a number of senior Canadian women which I thought was excellent.


The following is from Marilyn McLaren, President & CEO, Manitoba Public Insurance


“I was lucky, in terms of having opportunities, to move across the organization and do different kinds of work. I was in a very operational area and then I got to work in the public affairs area. So understand the extent to which you can move within a large organization and understand what the rules of the game are in terms of moving ahead.”
