Last week we celebrated International Women’s Day. Half the population swelled with pride, and many took a stand for stronger progress. For me, it was a reminder that we haven’t reached equality and parity when we need a day just for women. It should also be a reminder to all that it is simply smart business to support a world with equality and parity. Very tangible tools and guidance for all entrepreneurs in this edition. Knowing is half the battle. Enjoy!
