If agency cultures help create a different set of expectations and drive a different set of behaviors among women (and men), and we make it easier for women to resume their careers and fulfil their professional potential, we will have a richer pool of leadership talent in the future.

Most women – the sympathetic ones – have thinner skins than most men; but you can care too much what others think. The only cure is ganging up with other women and defending one another, drawing strength in numbers. Women’s friendships see them through – something competitive men are often bad at.
