Sally Helgesen’s most recent book, which will be released April 10, "How Women Rise," co-authored with Marshall Goldsmith, examines the behaviors most likely to get in the way of successful women.

Considered the gold standard among experts on women’s leadership, Sally has been developing and delivering programs for women leaders around the globe for 30 years. She also consults with senior leaders in corporations, associations and law firms on building more inclusive cultures.

The Web of Inclusion: A New Architecture for Building Great Organizations was cited in The Wall Street Journal as one of the best books on leadership of all time and is credited with bringing the language of inclusion into business.

In addition to her corporate work, Sally has consulted with the UNDP on building more inclusive country offices in Africa and Asia, led seminars at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Smith College, and been visiting scholar at Northwestern University, UNordic Stockholm and the Lauriston Institute in Melbourne AU.
