Dare to Lead by Brené Brown

In Brené words: “At the end of the day, at the end of the week, at the end of my life, I want to say I contributed more than I criticized.”

The Complete Poetry by Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou spoke about the power of words. I wonder if we all gave a little more thought to how our words impacted others, would we be more likely to recognize and experience our shared humanity? Would we take more joy in helping each other rise?

Rebel Girls Lead: 25 Tales of Powerful Women

My daughter is reading this. It’s a selection of incredible stories from the first three Rebel Girls collections with some new ones mixed in. Short doses of inspiration for anyone.

Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez

If there are systemic gaps in data, there are gaps in our understanding of problems. If there are gaps in our understanding, how do we create solutions that truly serve everyone?

My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsberg

RBG said, “Reading is the key that opens doors to many good things in life. Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true.”

We want to hear from you!
