The ‘Girls’ in The BoardRoom by Ibukun Awosika

In this book, I have sought to share stories of women who have actively worked to earn their seats at the table; to celebrate the women who have, despite all the challenges of gender, built successful careers in the boardroom. And to use the stories and experiences of these women as a tool to equip and inspire other women who aspire to climb the career ladder and land top positions. Sit back and enjoy the journey through the eyes of these relentless women.
