I normally don't review the non-fiction books I read because you kind of run out of things to say about writing books after a while, but this was a book recommended by my cousin and is not only a great book, but is by my new bosses at Seneca Women. I read this back when I was still studying for my finals this semester and was blown away not only by how much women really impact the economy (something I never really thought about before my women's studies class this semester), but also the individual stories of these empowered women were so moving and inspiring that I just have to share this here.
About the Book
Title: Fast Forward: How Women Can Achieve Power and Purpose
Author: Melanne Verveer and Kim Azzarelli
Topics: Non-Fiction, Feminism
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Publication Date: October 6, 2015
Learn how some of the world’s most powerful women are using their growing economic power to create success and meaning in their lives while building a better world.
Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In ignited a conversation about women and their careers, and resonated with millions of readers. Fast Forward, by two women leaders with experience and access throughout corporate America and around the world, takes the next step. Through interviews with a network of over fifty trailblazing women, it shows women how to accelerate their growing economic power and combine it with purpose to create success and meaning in their lives while building a better world.
“Fast Forward shows us how leaders at every level can use their power and purpose to help more and more women achieve their dreams for a better life.” — Hillary Rodham Clinton
About the Authors
Seneca Women is a global leadership forum centered on the principle that advancing women and girls will fast forward us to a better world.
Fast Forward embodies three principles. Know your power: Realize that women today command unprecedented resources, skills and power. And as they ascend, women are increasingly using their power for purpose. Find your purpose: Power backed by purpose propels women to create success and meaning in their own lives while making a difference—often by advancing other women and girls. Connect with others: This is a key to turning your power and purpose into action, and often can be achieved through women-led networks and groups.
