  • Learn how women are blazing their own trails as business leaders, entrepreneurs, survivors, philanthropists, and parents.
  • Find out how smart, successful and courageous women really think about their careers, their lives, their families, and their futures-all in their own voices.

“The most powerful and courageous voice any of us can listen to is our own, but it is often the one that we spend the least time cultivating and tuning into...” writes Hanson.

More Than 85 Broads is an essential read for women and men at every stage of their careers and lives. It will surprise you, motivate you, and inspire you to connect with others. Most importantly, it will help you find your own passion, build your own network, and define success on your own terms.

Review:

'...compulsory reading for all British schoolgirls' -- Joanna Coles in the Evening Standard

'Most books about working women are as earnest as they are unreadable. What makes this one work is...' -- Joanna Coles in the Evening Standard, 10 March 2006

'What better role models could you find?' -- Joanna Coles in the Evening Standard, 10 March 2006

From the Back Cover:

THEY'RE SMART. THEY'RE COURAGEOUS. THEY'RE CONNECTED.

MEET THE WOMEN OF 85 BROADS

Trailblazers. Adventurers. Entrepreneurs. Parents. Givers.Survivors. Officers. Ambassadors. Visionaries.

Wall Street trailblazer Janet Hanson introduces us to the extraordinary women of 85 Broads, the independent network she founded in 1999 for women professionals who currently or formerly worked for investment banking powerhouse Goldman Sachs.

The name of the network is a humorous play on Goldman's address, 85 Broad Street in NYC. Today this phenomenal network has grown into a global community that reaches across cultures, borders, career paths, and generations to connect and empower over 10,000 members around the world. It now includes women from the leading graduate business schools and undergraduate campuses through the network's unique “Broad2Broad” and “Broad2Be” co-mentoring partnerships.

“WOW!! More Than 85 Broads is smashing, funny, sad, penetrating, revealing and wholly relevant. On behalf of my three daughters who will be facing the working world after 2010, I thank you. Their lives will be immeasurably enriched by the book and the incredible network you've created.”-PETER D. KIERNAN, former Partner of Goldman Sachs and Chairman of the Christopher Reeve Foundation

“Janet Hanson isn't just an incredible networker. Nor is she simply a Wall Street success story and a prosperous entrepreneur. There is only one way to describe Janet Hanson: a force of nature.” -SUZANNE WOOLLEY, “Inspire Others,” Money for Women
