--Helene Gayle, M.D., President and CEO, CARE

“An interior decorator who was offered a management post respectfully told me it wasn’t what she wanted, so we moved her ahead on a more creative track. It’s powerful to stay true to your passion.”
--Pernille Spiers Lopez, President, IKEA North America

“We wanted to air vintage ads on tV Land but didn’t know how to acquire them. I told a young woman, ‘Figure it out.’ She did. Now she runs her own talent agency.”
