EPISODE 1

Betsy Beers

Meet Betsy Beers, the Executive Producer of Shondaland. For over 20 years, Beers has been helping to fuel our collective cultural obsessions by producing shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, and, of course, Bridgerton. But Betsy’s path was not without roadblocks—and she hardly knew what a producer even did before she became one.

ABOUT THE HOST

Sali’s Story

Sali spent a decade working in the Bay Area's finance and technology scene where she struggled to find work clothes that were both bold and practical. Options were stagnant, constricting, and lacked key functional elements.

Amidst her search, Sali read a study whose finding moved her to action: A woman’s ability to make a strong sartorial statement impacts her confidence, her career, and ultimately, her bottom line. 

It was then that Sali, an entrepreneur at heart and unapologetic power dresser, founded Argent. She set out to provide modern-day women with inspiring, practical, go-to resources to instill confidence in what to wear for their busy (often hybrid) lives. From then on out, Sali’s mission has been to help women suit up to level the office playing field and claim their seat at the table.
