Women are in positions of leadership in the business world more than ever before. And for many women who make it to the top, it’s about more than just power and a big paycheck. They’re giving back, in ways that sometimes even they never expected!
Hey Boss, Lady!, hosted by psychologist Andrea Goeglein and corporate executive Kristi Atwater, is about women and what they're doing once they make it to the top of their fields. The stories they tell are stories of transformation. They’re stories that inspire and, at a time in our world when we’re all facing challenges, they give us hope.
