    The System is Rigged, with Reshma Saujani

    Redefining Power in Corporate America, with Deepa Purushothaman

As a result, talented women everywhere remain isolated and undervalued, systemically challenged to develop and retain the personal power essential to individual success. Which is why Deepa Purushothaman is spurring change – with her new book THE FIRST, THE FEW, THE ONLY: How Women of Color Can Redefine Power in Corporate America, and her online platform, nFormation. Listen in as she and Laura talk about mentorship, sponsorship, and what we need to build an inclusive sisterhood at work. Originally aired with Host Laura Zarrow on March 3, 2022 on SiriusXM’s Business Radio, Channel 132.
