Claudia's "How We Rise" Leadership Podcast

As a fourth year SHE summit attendee, this conference continues to amaze me with the caliber of speakers, topics, and the involvement and commitment to make the world a better place for all. The summit is stimulating, educational, and motivating, and I leave thinking about ways to incorporate the knowledge into my work environment.
