Author Deborah Grant, an American businesswoman and global citizen who was born and raised in Japan, embarks on an exercise to transform the frustration she felt the day she discovered that Facebook, when going public in May of 2012, anunced they had seven men on the board of directors--and t one single woman. Part memoir, part essay, and part call to action, her desire to have many more women in positions of leadership is written with the tion that women and men are always all in this together as we continue to move forward in the ongoing, ever evolving, best expression of our humanity. This is a timely reflection upon how women at all levels of business can come together to take a leap forward and gain more seats of power at the top of corporations and organizations across the United States and the world.
Deborah Grant was born in Tokyo, Japan and lived for the first twenty-five years of her life there in post World War II Japan as the daughter of Christian missionaries. Bilingual in English and Japanese, her varied career has included roles as teacher, radio producer, corporate trainer, company owner, and international marketing consultant. A wide range of business and cultural perspectives constitute her world citizen's viewpoint transcending race, religion, gender, and nationality. Her passionate desire is to see more women in top positions of leadership in the US and around the world. She has one daughter and two granddaughters, and calls Santa Monica, California home.
