““Your Turn is a must-read for every woman navigating her career, whether at the entry or executive level, as well as for all companies that are committed to not losing top talent. Recognizing that careers are not linear, Jen and Stacey lay out an array of creative strategies so you can be the entrepreneur and founder of your own life and design whatever path makes sense for you.”

Tiffany Dufu on Apres for Your Turn, for women navigating career and motherhood


“Jen and Stacey don’t pretend to have all the answers — because only you can decide what’s best for you and your family — but they do have all the right questions to ask yourself as you navigate your personal and professional journey as a working mother, along with invaluable insight from hundreds of women and companies about what’s worked for them.”

Arianna Huffington on Apres for Your Turn, for women navigating career and motherhood



“We can’t truly thrive in a workplace that doesn’t allow us to bring our whole selves to work. And too many women still feel that they have to choose between their career goals and their personal goals, often just as they are hitting their stride at work. Your Turn is the realistic yet positive guide today’s women need to help them navigate a career path that allows them to succeed in all parts of their lives.”
