International Women’s Day 2019: Advice for Aspiring Female Leaders


In celebration of International Women’s Day, we rounded up some of our Co-CEO Beth Gerstein’s best advice for aspiring female leaders as featured in Forbes.

Have Confidence

It’s important to have confidence in your ability, so speak up when you have an idea and make your voice heard.

Take Risks

Volunteer for stretch assignments and don’t shy away from tough projects.

Foster and Maintain Relationships

Solicit advice from people you look up to that can guide and influence your career; there’s nothing more valuable than gaining insights from a respected mentor or seasoned vet.

Be Persistent

During your journey, you will likely face a lot of resistance, but ultimately if you stick with what you believe is right, you can truly make an impact.

Lead by Example

You need to be intentional about both what you say and what you do. Everything you do sets the tone for the organization.
