We are celebrating the relationships we fostered and value we created through 2019 and thanking Martha Sales for her dedication to the board as she retires from her role.

As a leader within the not-for-profit sector for over 15 years now, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many incredible women. In celebration of International Women’s Day, I share here some of the key approaches that I have learned from these strong and smart individuals. I have found these practices to be essential in my own development as a leader – and as a woman.
