2017 Session | Achieving More by Doing Less

Even though women are 50% of the workforce, they only represent 18% of the highest-level leaders.

Three Beliefs That Are Ruining Your Work-Life Balance

Tiffany DufuThe first eight years of her marriage, Tiffany Dufu had a beautiful home to go along with her brilliant career raising money to advance women and girls. She did most of the work around the house, but being Type A, she was okay with that.
