We’re comprised of the fabulous Lauryn Haas, Nora Biette-Timmons, and Alanis King (and me!). And we source all kinds of stories. We love getting inside the heads of professionals and leaders — how they got their jobs, what their jobs are like day to day, how they think about managing, their industry, and the world around us.

  • Or a reported story — exhibit B (by Fortesa Latifi)
  • We also do trend pieces, digging into how the working world and various industries are growing and changing Read this (by Lisa Rabasca Roepe)
  • And this (by Mark Ellwood)
