Her bold life’s mission to empower ten-thousand diverse women, over the next five years, so they are prepared to enter and advance through the executive leadership development pipeline and gain equity within organizations. Margaret feels that it’s not enough to be promoted if we do not gain equity. The bold vision for this program asks you to look ahead, Five Years From Today...Imagine yourself sitting at the top of a mountain looking back at your career. You're a purposeful, formidable, and powerful woman positioned as an expert in your field. You've tripled your earnings, you're able to give back, and you're paying it forward. You've become the leader you envisioned. You set big goals and achieved them. Now imagine where your career will be if you do nothing today to create your vision for tomorrow. What will you regret in five years? This bold statement is from Margaret’s third book, Leadership Self-Transformation, she challenges women to clarify their vision, pivot from expert to leader, and build the career they want.
