In it, Carol Sanford, one of the most trusted names in responsible business development, brings her vast expertise in helping executives and corporations to the entrepreneur looking to launch and scale a venture. She maps this journey through four archetypes: The Realizing Entrepreneur: Industry Game-Changer. The Reconnection Entrepreneur: Society Game-Changer. The Reciprocity Entrepreneur: Culture Game-Changer. The Regenerative Entrepreneur: Governance Game-Changer.

From one of Time magazine´s ´´Forty Most Influential Minds in Technology´´ comes an essential collection of candid, firsthand accounts of women in technology. Women in technology are on the rise in both power and numbers, and now it´s more important than ever not to lose that momentum, to ´´lean in´´ and close the gender gap. Although they make up half of the population, only 14 percent of engineers in the United States are women. They take the seeds of technological advancement and build something life changing, potentially life saving. The future of technology depends on the full and active participation of women and men working together, and it is vital that women are both educated and encouraged to go into the tech sectors. Hailed by Foreign Policy Magazine as a ´´Top 100 Global Thinker´´, professor, researcher, and entrepreneur Vivek Wadhwa, alongside award-winning journalist Farai Chideya, set out to collect anecdotes and essays from global leaders, sharing how their experiences in innovative industries frame the future of entrepreneurship. With interviews and essays from hundreds of women in STEM fields, including Anousheh Ansari, the first female private-sector space explorer; former Google[X] VP and current CTO of the USA Megan Smith; Ory Okolloh of the Omidyar Network; venture capitalist Heidi Roizen; and CEO of Nanobiosym, Dr. Anita Goel, MD, PhD, Innovating Women offers perspectives on the challenges women face, the strategies they employ in the workplace, and how an organization can succeed or fail in its attempts to support the career advancement of women. 1.
