Girls Who Run the World: 31 CEOs Who Mean Business

In her book, Diana Kapp interviewed and featured 31 successful female entrepreneurs from a variety of fields, from biotech and construction to food and fashion. This celebration of triumph and perseverance includes the stories of how the entrepreneurs behind Stitch Fix, Rent the Runway, SPANX, Bare Escentuals, 23andMe, Glossier, Soul Cycle, Pop Sugar, Epibone, and Uncharted Power, amongst many others, made it big. Come and hear the personal narratives of struggle, failure, success, and their fight to the top.

These women, like our members, defied the statistics and are breaking barriers every day. Their stories will inspire you and you will hear real trade secrets from the front lines.
