About Us

43 percent of women who have kids leave the workforce at some point. In this series of fireside chats with inspiring women, spanning a variety of industries and experiences, host Claudia Reuter aims to share more examples than what we typically see of what's possible for women thinking through work and family decisions. A former stay-at-home mom herself, Reuter went on to be a venture-backed CEO, an executive at a >$2B company, a board director, and a Managing Director at Techstars. She is the author of Yes, You Can Do This! Here, she profiles authors, tech executives, doctors, entrepreneurs, stay-at-home moms and more who share their professional journeys and advice for women grappling with work-life balance.

Looking Forward with Sabrina M. Tucker-Barrett

This is our final episode of this season of The 43 Percent. This week, Claudia speaks with Sabrina Tucker-Barrett, the CEO of Girls for Technology, a Connecticut-based non-profit that supports Black and brown girls and women in STEM. In quarantine, her business has flourished. Girls and women across the country have joined Sabrina’s online courses that cover everything from building pitch decks to handling microaggressions in the office. And in uplifting these girls and women, in giving them a space to learn, and a platform to share their experiences, Sabrina teaches them: You are enough. You are valuable. And you will make a difference.

Storytelling with Natalie Nixon

A few weeks ago, severe storms rolled through Philadelphia. They came on the heels of George Floyd’s murder, which came amid a global pandemic. And Natalie Nixon, Ph.D., a creativity consultant and author of the new book, "The Creativity Leap," felt the universe saying, “Pause.” So this week, Natalie shares what we can learn from a pause. How taking a step back and looking around can help us see creativity as a problem solver. How we can find power in our own stories. And how, if we pause long enough, we can find optimism in the future.

Designing Leadership with Sarah Joyce

Sarah Joyce is an IT healthcare executive and president of the Boston chapter for Lean In. Sarah grew up blind to the gender gap in the workplace. And then, she entered corporate America. This week, Sarah talks to Claudia from her new office -- the kitchen island -- about being the only woman at the proverbial (and sometimes literal) table, and rethinking what leadership looks like, both as a boss and a parent.

Re-Thinking Possibility with Nina Vaca

When it comes to changing the system, there are always the voices that say, "It's too complicated. It's too idealistic." But what Nina Vaca, CEO of Pinnacle Group, hears is a lack of imagination. A refusal to re-think possibility. On the way to being a mother of four, and head of a company that is 66% women and 48% BIPOC, Nina laid out her own path. So today, Claudia and Nina talk about steps forward. How those in leadership can build lasting change and support into their infrastructure. And how mothers can thrive within a system that was not built for them.

In Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

This show, The 43 Percent, is supposed to be a show about opportunity -- in parenting, in career, in life. But the reality is that while motherhood is a universal experience, and talent is evenly distributed across society, opportunity and safety are not. So this week, we’re not publishing a new episode. Instead, I wanted to share some resources that benefit Black mothers and families. They are listed and linked in our episode notes. But representation beyond this week is also important. As we look to the future of this show, we are dedicating ourselves to being a platform that raises up a diverse set of experiences. Motherhood is universal. And we want to show that, fully.

Stepping Up with Minda Brusse

Minda Brusse is a person of action. But then COVID-19 hit. Under lockdown, she was suddenly at a loss. How could she help all these families suddenly weathering a financial crisis? So Minda, co-founder of venture firm First Row Partners, got to work. Over the last six weeks -- yes, six weeks -- she has co-founded and launched The $1K Project. Along with investor Alex Iskold, Minda has matched hundreds of families in need with peers willing to provide a thousand dollars of assistance, for three months. This week, Claudia and Minda talk about stepping up and stepping in - even when it feels messy, even when it feels like a drop in the bucket.

Growing Up with Erin Sparler

Being in lockdown can make our oldest friendships shine even brighter. Erin Sparler, an artist, entrepreneur and podcast, is one of Claudia’s oldest friends. They met when they were 18, in college. And they’ve stayed friends, even as they grew up and took off on their own paths. So that’s what Claudia and Erin talk about this week -- about growing up, about learning to advocate for themselves, and how to enjoy the ride, no matter how steep the path.

Sharing the Work with Chris Laughlin and Sarah Boyd

For Chris Laughlin and Sarah Boyd, each day is a figurative -- and sometimes, a literal -- obstacle course. Sarah is a women’s rights policy expert, currently serving as Director of Global Advocacy for data2x, a gender data initiative. Chris is the midst of an MBA program at MIT, where he focuses on innovation, entrepreneurship and venture capital. They spend their days in and out of Zoom meetings, conference calls, study sessions, all while raising a two-year-old under lockdown. This week, Chris and Sarah both join Claudia to talk about their greatest parenting success -- teamwork

Saying Thank You with Maureen Vezza & Annie Reuter

What do you think of, when you hear the word “hero”? Recently, that word has become an everyday phrase. Not just because people have exhibited extraordinary strength and bravery in the face of something so monumental, but because our understanding of the word has shifted. The 43 Percent has always been a show about possibility - in business, in motherhood, and in life. This week, Claudia talks to two women who have been heroes of possibility; who always looked forward, no matter the hurdle. Her mother, Maureen Vezza, and her mother-in-law, Annie Reuter.

Learning Resilience with Jenny Lawton

Jenny Lawton knows a lot about getting back up. Jenny climbed the tech world ladder not once, but twice -- first as the CEO of her own tech company, and now as the Chief Innovation Officer for Techstars. In between, she opened a bookstore, went through a divorce, and Jenny re-entered the start-up world as a newly single mother of two. She got back up. And this week, Jenny and Claudia talk about how each of us can practice resilience, too, both professionally and personally.
