Advice From Women Who Lead

Today, there are 104 women serving in the United States Congress, 29 female heads of government or state around the world, and 23 female CEOs in the S&P 500. But there are many more women leading important global and US institutions and initiatives, changing business models and transforming lives. From journalists to social advocates to business leaders, women are leading in their own ways and on their own terms. What do these leaders have on their minds? What can we learn from them? And what do they have to share with the next generation of leaders – women and men alike? Join us to listen to the advice that women who lead have for leaders everywhere.
