Our To My Daughter campaign, which began in 2017, is a worldwide movement in which fathers, mothers and mentors worldwide write letters of guidance and wisdom to the important young women in their lives. Some write to their daughters; others, to their mentees, relatives, or young men. So far, we have received more than 160 letters and photos, which can be found at www.leadersanddaughters.com. Please join us by submitting a letter to a daughter or a mentee, along with a picture, at #LeadersandDaughters today.

I invite all leaders to inspire young women to realize their dreams.

Boards can’t just add one woman and expect real change in the way they operate.
