In her groundbreaking, deeply reported work, Julia Boorstin reveals the odds-defying leadership approaches of women running the world’s most innovative and successful companies – and what we can learn from them.

Now, in When Women Lead, Boorstin brings together the stories of over sixty of those female CEOs and leaders, and dozens of new studies. Her combination of narrative and research reveals how once-underestimated characteristics, from vulnerability and gratitude to divergent thinking, can be vital superpowers – and that anyone can work these approaches to their advantage.

Featuring new interviews with Gwyneth Paltrow, Jenn Hyman, Whitney Wolfe Herd, Lena Waithe, Shivani Siroya, and more, When Women Lead is a radical blueprint for the future of business, and our world at large.
