AbstractThis multi-part case follows a woman from her early career to a senior executive position in a consumer products context, and illustrates how she discovers and strengthens her willingness and skill at voicing her values through a variety of challenges at different points in her career. Enabling factors and learnings are included in the teaching note and the case brings home the idea that there is something appropriate to do at every stage of one’s career, and that voice is a muscle that needs to be exercised over time. The case works well in leadership, organizational behavior, diversity, ethics and career management courses, as well as in stand-alone workshops.
