In her groundbreaking new book, Women Who Don't Wait in Line, Reshma Saujani advocates for a new model of female leadership focused on embracing risk and failure, promoting mentorship and sponsorship, and boldly charting your own course - personally and professionally. After years of working as an attorney and an activist and fundraiser, Saujani left her private sector career behind and campaigned as the first Indian American woman in the country to run for US Congress. Following the highly publicized race, she stayed true to her passion for public service, becoming Deputy Public Advocate of New York City. Saujani is a graduate of the University of Illinois, Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, and Yale Law School.
