Bold(h)er shares stories of and for women who stand out. Our guests are entrepreneurs, executives, celebrities, innovators, mothers, and philanthropists; what unites them is their transformative journeys and bold, life-changing decisions, ones that are equally, but uniquely, compelling. Bold(h)er is boldness redefined: sometimes it’s the boldness to leave a difficult situation or to care for yourself or a loved one, as much as it is the traditional boldness of starting or advancing in business.
Brought to you by BMO for Women and hosted by seasoned journalist and entrepreneur Lisa Bragg, Bold(h)er delivers thought-provoking conversations that inspire listeners to make their own bold moves in business and in life.
