Rebekah Bastian is the CEO & Co-founder of OwnTrail, an online platform that connects, mentors and empowers women as they share their personal and professional journeys and experiences. Previously, Rebekah was Vice President of Product and Vice President of Community and Culture at Zillow. She is the author of the book “Blaze Your Own Trail,” a contributor to Forbes and a frequent speaker on social impact, career navigation and corporate diversity.

During this episode, you will hear Rebekah talk about:

  • How she grew her career at Zillow, and how her experiences there helped inspire her to write her book and create OwnTrail
  • Why so many women are still not getting the mentoring support they need, and how OwnTrail helps address this problem by providing access to "micro-acts of mentorship" that women may not otherwise receive
  • How OwnTrail is different from other online networking sites
  • Why it’s important for women to share both their personal and professional journeys with each other
