Jennifer Brown visits The Voice of BOLD Business Radio to talk about how to be the best women leaders we can be AND build the path for the business women that come after us … all at the same same time. Diversity is a hot topic, and rightly so. It is one oft-overlooked way through which we can challenge our assumptions, make conscious changes, and increase our awareness.
