This book, based on interviews with the world’s most inspiring women, “shows every woman how she can empower herself and her community” (Madeleine Albright). Important conversations about leaning in, work/life balance, and empowering females around the world have energized a generation of women. Fast Forward, by two leaders whose experience spans corporate America, public service, and global diplomacy, takes the next step. Through interviews with a network of more than seventy trailblazing women, Fast Forward shows women how to accelerate their growing economic power and combine it with purpose to find both success and meaning in their lives. Companies, countries, and organizations the world over are waking up to today’s new reality. Women control the lion’s share of purchasing power and are increasingly essential to competitiveness. The age of women’s transformative economic influence has finally arrived, and women are using their power for purpose, redefining what power and success mean in the process. Through clear, practical advice and personal stories of women around the world—including Hillary Clinton, Geena Davis, Christine Lagarde, and Diane von Furstenberg—Fast Forward shows every woman how to know her power, find her purpose, and connect with others to achieve her life goals.
