Reflective Conversations, Impactful Insights

Finding Her Voice draws from intimate, in-depth conversations with nearly three dozen women of wealth about how they came to wealth, their role in the family, the obstacles they overcame, and how they prepared their rising generation while sustaining family connections and family harmony.

These stories have important implications for evolving gender roles across society as well as for wealthy families and the industries that serve them.
