Author: Julia Boorstin
This book offers a deep dive into the benefits of having more women in leadership positions.
Julia Boorstin, the debut author of When Women Lead, has herself worked in a highly power-imbalanced environment as a reporter at CNBC.
Boorstin profiles many women, from those leading startups to publicly traded company CEOs.
For this book, she interviewed various women in business about the discrimination they faced and how their leadership changed things. Workplace discrimination is not limited to the boardroom alone; it is in fact the reflection of the pervading gender norms in the world.
The book is divided into three sections: first, how and why women tend to build strong companies, then how they tackle complex problems, and finally looking at the new patterns women leaders are creating to break free from old male-dominated systems.
Featuring new interviews with Katrina Lake, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jenn Hyman, Whitney Wolfe Herd, Lena Waithe, Shivani Siroya, Julia Collins, and more, When Women Lead is a radical blueprint for the future of business.
