Authors to discuss new book “Uplifting Leaders* (*Who Happen to be Women)” at the Cuyahoga County Public Library—Beachwood Branch on Nov. 8 at 7pm


Women hold only 6 percent of the nation’s top CEO positions, according to Fortune.

This staggering gender-based gap in ranks prompted two Cleveland-based business partners, Barb Brown and Margie Flynn, to take a deeper look at women who made it to the top and to learn about their journeys to inspire others.

In their book, Uplifting Leaders* (*Who Happen to be Women), Brown and Flynn capture insights and stories of 25 of the nation’s most accomplished and influential women in business on how they empower and uplift others as they seek to progress in their lives and careers.

Join the co-authors to discuss how successful leaders—both women and men—reach the top while still uplifting others along the way.
