“As companies across sectors work to improve pay equity and wage transparency, it’s equally important for women to know how that game is played, from initial discernment to final negotiations. Back to Business is a must-read, with real-life success stories and actionable, accurate advice.

Britt Provost

“A new job has a lot of unknowns—an unfamiliar customer, a novel product, or a contemporary skill set. Maintain a foundation of confidence by keeping one foot in something you know to pivot purposefully to your next great job. Back to Business is the perfect remedy for facing the unknowns fearlessly: a step-by-step guide to take inventory of your capability, and an actionable roadmap to your next role.

Colleen O’Brien

“Demand for flexible work from women has never been higher, and so is the need to properly prepare for that exploration. Back to Business provides everything you need to get back in the game, or switch roles, and get paid properly for it.

"When women return to the workforce, having a trusted guide helps smooth the path to a successful re-entry. Back to Business serves that purpose, providing examples, templates, tools, and advice to get you back in the game, in practical and supportive ways."
