Gloria Feldt, the cofounder and president of Take The Lead, has been an advocate for women for more than 40 years.
Her career at Planned Parenthood Federation of America spanned 30 years, including a 10-year stint as its national president and chief executive officer. She is the author of No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power. In response to the fact that women have been stuck at 18 percent of top leadership positions for two decades, this book gives women practical "power tools" that break down their unconscious barriers to greater personal and professional success. Thi February, she'll be leading an online course with these tools, Power to Lead.
In 2014, she founded Take The Lead, an initiative to bring women to leadership parity by 2025. People magazine has called her “the voice of experience,” and Vanity Fair named her one of the USA’s Top 200 Women Legends, Leaders, and Trailblazers.
