The buzz: Mom, are we there yet?
We’re seeing a ground-swell of policy and practice discussions and activities about the under-representation of women in the boardroom, C-suite and high-growth entrepreneurship. The Lean-In Revolution has brought men into the conversation and spurred women’s power networks. More venture capital firms, angel investment groups, and accelerator programs are aimed at female-founded high-growth startups.

The experts speak.

Tanya M. Odom, Global Consultant: “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” (Gandhi)
Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP SuccessFactors: “The doing is the thing. The talking and worrying and thinking is not the thing.” (Amy Poehler)
