She was one of Time Magazine’s 2012 “Game Changers,” Business Insider’s 2013 “50 Women Who Are Changing The World,” and in 2014 was named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. She teaches courses at Harvard on power, influence, and communication. Her book, PRESENCE was released by Little, Brown in December, 2015.
