Prioritizing Opportunity Over Tradition with Dean Erika James Who Dares Wins: Life, Leadership, and Finance with Anthony Noto

    • Business

Dean Erika James, Dean of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, didn’t conform to a more ‘traditional’ path to academia. She committed to taking risks and pivots throughout her career as she listened to what motivated her and the opportunities that emerged. She speaks with Anthony about what informed her decision to pursue academia, how she came to specialize in crisis management with her unique capabilities as a trained organizational psychologist, and how her upbringing informs her decisions to encourage a more diverse and equitable workforce. Josh Fagen, a longtime trusted advisor, also sits down with Anthony to discuss how "quiet quitting" can be problematic for organizations, and why it's a smart idea to assess opportunities before taking them.
