WHO WE ARE

BrandiRollinsPhoto_WomenWhoLeadSept24_TEASERS007.jpg

"I founded How Women Lead to create the cultural change I want for you, me, our daughters, and all women leaders. My desire is to re-write the mean-girl narrative that a lot of us grew up with; I want to leave behind the mindset that women’s power is scarce or zero-sum. My own leadership is intensely positive and affirming, vastly ambitious, and collaborative."

- Julie Castro Abrams, Founder & CEO
