Happy Women’s History Month! We are so inspired by the women on the Chamber’s Board of Directors and their amazing stories of leadership. To recognize the contributions of female leaders and their inspiring stories, the women on the Board are highlighting their favorite books. These books have helped shape them as leaders, inspire their own journeys and deeply impact the way they lead. Be sure to check out these inspiring reads to help you on your own journey.
