This book brings back a flood of memories about how it used to be before women began lifting each other to new heights. Men had their clubs, women were on their own looking from the outside in. When women’s peer groups emerged, it was a life raft. We pushed and cheered each other along, and now the economic and social pies are bigger for all of us, male and female alike. It’s not enough to get a seat at the table. With women by your side, you get to change the table.”

Edie Weiner, President of Weiner, Edrich, Brown, Inc.; Co-Founder, The Belizean Grove and TARA

Susan Schiffer Stautberg, Co-Founder and Co-Chair of Women Corporate Directors, The Belizean Grove, TARA, and OnBoard Bootcamp

It’s not just about what women will achieve for themselves. It’s adding women to the mix with men. It’s about having two styles of problem-solving simultaneously. It may help us win back a place for our country. It means we’ll have better promise for our children, greater social welfare and understanding, a healthier planet and environment, and economic success. Because we’ve been functioning on half a brain. Men have been doing a fine job, but they’ve just been doing half… Here come the women.”
