Jen Wong is the Chief Operating Officer at Reddit. In case you didn’t know, Reddit is an online network of communities, with over 430+ million average monthly active users. In short, Reddit is a big deal.

In this episode, Jen and Amy Jo discuss the professional and personal decisions Jen made on her path to becoming COO of Reddit, which involved, among other things, making regular commutes from New York to San Francisco while raising her son.

Jen also shares her unique approach to problem solving and decision making. You’ll hear her thoughts on how to decide when to step back and let things play out and when you need to step in.

She also talks about the importance of diversity in the workplace & gives insight to what the future will look like for companies who choose to cultivate a more diverse work environment versus those who don’t.
