Overview

Leading with Care

How women around the world are inspiring businesses, empowering communities, and creating opportunity

Mary Cantando

Foreword by Sheila C. Johnson

Founder and CEO, Salamander Hospitality & Global Ambassador, CARE

Praise for Leading with Care

"I have been inspired by Care's success in supporting women's best instincts with programs that help women in every culture meet their highest potential. LEADING WITH CARE will inspire you to see the power in every woman's potential."
—Sharon Lawrence, actress/producer and chair, Women in Film Foundation

"Mary Cantando leads us with care through an unexpected new universe of role models: women struggling to feed their families in Niger, build micro businesses in Peru, and teach fellow villagers to read in Malawi. She has poured her passion for helping women and guiding their successes into the pages of LEADING WITH CARE."
—Susan Phillips Bari, president and CEO, Leader to Leader Institute

"Women continue to push forward to make important things happen for themselves and those around them. In some of the most unlikely places on earth, they have become the leaders of their communities. In LEADING WITH CARE, Mary Cantando provides a unique learning experience through the eyes of women across the globe and shows you why and how this mind shift is happening. UPS is proud to join with CARE in enabling this upward momentum of women everywhere."
—Ken Sternad, president, The UPS Foundation

"Leading With Care is an inspiring read for any woman in business. This book introduces you to amazing mentors that you'll not find elsewhere."
—Karen Kerrigan, president and CEO, Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council

"Every woman must read Leading With Care. Each of these women, with the odds stacked against her, has come out on top because someone cared. To have all these insights and experiences collected in one place—what an incredible inspiration and resource!"
—Barbara Kasoff, cofounder and president, Women Impacting Public Policy

"There are important lessons to be learned from women in all corners of the globe, and LEADING WITH CARE teaches those lessons. Any woman who is serious about business must read this book."
—Monica Smiley, publisher, Enterprising Women Magazine
