LinkedIn head of diversity Rosanna Durruthy left Harvard without a degree, and explains that some of the things she picked up on her journey from homelessness to a corner office were even more valuable; psychiatrist Robin Berman tells us how she felt the presence of her husband’s ex-wife, which gave her strength and support during her parenting journey; and “The Longest Shortest Time” creator Hillary Frank describes the episiotomy scar that changed her life.
