Trina Knoche Shares Her Story and Thoughts on Ban Bossy

Posted: Updated:

Meet Trina Knoche, the district manager for the Farmers Insurance Group.

She has worked in insurance her whole life, and now Trina is a boss with a lot of responsibilities. She helps people build financial services, trains new employees, works with agents and is a liaison between them and the company. But with less than 10% of their district managers being female, Trina is one of many women who works hard to maintain the image of a boss, versus being bossy.

Trina says, "I do think we get judged differently than men do in our positions, and if we make a mistake, people seem to notice it quicker than maybe our male counter parts."

Trina claims she felt this way the most when she first got into the industry, but it got her to toughen up quickly, something she feels women need to be ready to do.

She believes the answer will come from campaigns like Ban Bossy, and most importantly, from mentors. Trina still has a mentor who helps her navigate through tough situations, and she also has the support of a group called the Downtown Chicks.

However, not every female has a group like the downtown chicks, but Trina feels the Ban Bossy campaign is a step in the right direction to create the next generation of female leaders.
