Gloria Feldt is an activist, keynote speaker and president of Take The Lead, the new women’s leadership movement to prepare, develop, inspire and propel women to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025. Vanity Fair has called her one of “America’s Top 200 Women Leaders, Legends, and Trailblazers”.
