Virtual Book Launch: Ellen Snee's "Lead"
October 7, IWF NorCal member Ellen Snee provided members with an exclusive "virtual" book launch discussion of her recently published book Lead: How Women In Charge Claim Their Authority. Through an interview with Jan Yanehiro, Emmy Award winning broadcaster and fellow IWF NorCal member, we learned about Ellen's earlier life as a Catholic nun, her groundbreaking research on women’s leadership development, and her coaching and consulting work with executive women.
