When local business owners Barb Brown and Margie Flynn set out to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their Cleveland-based corporate sustainability and governance consulting firm, they embarked on a book project that’s purpose was to give further voice to women leaders.
Yet, it became so much more.
In their recently published book, Uplifting Leaders* (*Who Happen to be Women), Brown and Flynn capture insights and stories of 25 of the nation’s most accomplished and influential women in business on how they empower and uplift others as they seek to progress in their lives and careers.
The diverse spectrum of leaders who share their candid insights and advice range from newly instated Nasdaq President and CEO Adena Friedman; the Campbell Soup Company President and CEO Denise Morrison; and Cleveland-based KeyCorp Chairman and CEO Beth Mooney.
But, the authors want to do much more than simply tell these stories.
At the heart of the book is a call to action—to “pay it forward” by passing Uplifting Leaders and its insights onto other people in their lives.
For that reason, the authors will donate 100 percent of the book’s net proceeds to support the education of young women transitioning out of foster care through the YWCA Greater Cleveland’s Nurturing Independence and Aspirations (NIA) Program.
And, we’re joining together for a Facebook contest to continue their mission of uplifting current and aspiring leaders. Here’s how:
