IIC: Working in corporate America, founding No Women Left Behind, and advice for women wanting to advance in their career with Rosie Zilinskas

In our original series, Immigrants In Corporate, our mission was to amplify and empower the voices of immigrant working professionals looking for support at work. 

In this episode, we talk to Rosie Zilinskas, the Executive Career Strategist behind the “No Woman Left Behind” brand, which includes the “No Woman Left Behind” podcast, career-building services, mentoring support group, and consultancy. She is also the co-author of the bestselling book, “Engaging Speakers - Voices of Truth.” She is deeply passionate about supporting women advancing on equal footing within the Corporate world.


In this episode, we cover:

  • The experience of immigrating to the United States twice as a child
  • Reflecting on the milestones of a career in corporate America and becoming an Executive Vice President
  • Key areas that have changed in the corporate workplace to include more diversity
  • How being an immigrant can be leveraged to grow your skills and build success
