I found out I was pregnant on March 8, 2018. Why do I remember the specific date, you ask? It’s permanently etched into my brain because of the sheer panic that overwhelmed me as I looked at that little pink line. Sure I was happy, but I was also completely terrified.

Actual internal monologue: “I’m going to be responsible for a human in nine months?? But I still barely understand the concept of IRAs! I call my mom to ask whether I can take expired medication! I’ve never seen Star Wars! How can this be allowed?!”

Needless to say, it was a sleepless night.

Now, five weeks away from my due date, I feel at least slightly more prepared ... Read More

Beyond the Resume: How to Interview for Future Greatness in Sales

By Devon Brown

There are a handful of things that modern society still uses from the 1400’s. The “resume” is one of them. It has morphed and developed over time since Leonardo Da Vinci wrote his professional resume in 1482. While this seems like a no brainer, I’m still asking the question: why? We no longer use feather quill pens and more importantly, people are so much more than a one-sheet piece of paper of their “accomplishments.”

How to Decide if Working Remotely is the Right Move For You (or Your Employee)

When I had my first interview with HubSpot, I’d been a proud Californian for exactly two weeks. I cringed as I emailed my recruiter, “I’m so excited for this opportunity, but I just moved -- and I can’t do it again.” His reply was swift and easy, “Oh, that’s no problem, we’re open to this position working remote.”

How to Support a Trans Colleague

By Nathan Roy


TL;DR The main purpose of this post is to address what I’ve experienced while transitioning at work and what you can do to help your colleagues.

I’m approaching two major anniversaries this month. The first (and it feels crazy to say) is my two-year anniversary at HubSpot. The second, which is far more personal, is the 1-year anniversary of my medical transition.

Let’s start with a bit of context. For those of you who’ve never heard that term before, the HRC defines transitioning as:

“…the process by which some people strive to more closely align their internal knowledge of gender with its outward appearance.”

5 Ways You Can Make Your Sales Floor More Inclusive

By Michelle Benfer

Sales has gotten a bad rap for its “bro” culture, and not long ago, HubSpot faced that challenge on our own sales team. We took a hard look at the diversity of our company and realized it took us too long to make inclusion a priority. And as our company and our sales team have worked hard to move away from monoculture, we’ve had to reflect on what we actually mean when we say ‘diversity and inclusion in sales’.

Taking the Leap: A Step By Step Guide to Changing Careers

By Olga Banis

Have you been thinking that your current job doesn’t fulfill you? Would you like to change careers but aren’t sure where to start?

Many people who want to change careers never actually go through with it because of a number of factors such as: inertia, fear of change, fear of leaving something established for something that might not work out, fear that they lack the necessary skills to succeed, or fear that even if they change careers, they still won’t be happy.

53 Little Things You Can Do to Impact Diversity at Your Company

By Emma Brudner

When it comes to diversity and inclusion (D&I), I often find people fervently arguing in support of creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace … and then losing steam on the doing part. It can be difficult to know how to drive the movement forward, especially if D&I isn’t part of your job description.

After struggling with this myself, I started this list as a way of brainstorming every single discrete action I could think of to move the needle on D&I. You know, stuff that anybody in any organization can actually do. Because after all, D&I is everyone’s responsibility, and collective effort is needed to really make an impact.
