Free Resource Helps Women Have the Careers of their Dreams

October 27, 2016

More than 50 percent of women studying in business schools across the country will be fully or partially out of the workforce in just 10 years, (even higher at elite schools), thereby effectively taking themselves out of the running for C-Suite slots by the time they reach their mid-30s."Your Career, Your Terms" is a first-of-its-kind free resource for women who are 


looking to thrive at every stage of their careers. The insights and inspiration come from interviewing dozens of female executives, across sectors, industries, geographies and functions. A 30-year consulting and corporate veteran, Perry Yeatman, working with the Kellogg School of Management, identified four key Pivot PointsTM: Launch (usually 20s, post- college), Midcareer (usually 30s-mid40s, caregiving years), Executive (usually late 40s ) and Transition (often 50s or the "second acts") where providing additional support could really make a difference.

"During the past 30 years, I've built the career and life of my dreams. I've worked with world leaders; been a senior executive at Unilever and Kraft Foods; led transformational projects, from supporting Russia's privatization and economic reform to developing the World Economic Forum's New (sustainable) Vision for Agriculture. In doing so, I literally got well paid to travel the world, including stints living in Singapore, Moscow and London.  And I did it all without having to give up being a wife and mother.  It wasn't easy but I am so grateful for the amazing experiences I've had. This new platform is my latest and largest effort to 'give back' so that more women can have the careers and lives of their dreams," said Yeatman.

The site and podcast feature female executives, including Irene Rosenfeld, Chair and CEO of Mondelez International, Kim Nelson, SVP of external relations and president of the General Mills Foundation, Christie Hefner, CEO of Playboy for 20 years, Carolyn Miles, President and CEO of Save the Children and Sally Blount, Dean of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, to name just a few. So far, more than 75 executive women are lined up for interviews in the next six months.
