Young Leader Meeting
Leading a Hard-Working Team for Hard-Working Customers
About This Meeting
DEC Young Leaders met with Linda Hubbard, President & COO of Carhart, Inc. on December 9, 2021. This meeting was held at The Carhartt Workshop in Detroit.
The evening began with a private tour of the Carhartt Workshop.
Following the tour, Linda reflected on her career and what it means to be a leader in a global company. She discussed her leadership style, culture, and communication within the organization.
Her advice to her 25-year-old self is to ask for what you want and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. “How can I be an authentic person if I don’t own up to my mistakes?” Linda added.
A Q&A session followed with YLs asking how to work through imposter syndrome, unconscious bias, and the clothing and retail industry.
The event concluded with networking and a personal shopping experience in the Carhartt Store.
