You’ve likely all seen or heard the statistic that women don’t apply for a new job until they meet 100% of the criteria, whereas men will apply when they meet 60% of the criteria. Let’s close that “opportunity gap” by uncovering the mindset secrets of women leaders who said yes to opportunities that felt like a big stretch (and a big risk) at the time they committed, and that ultimately ended up shifting their career into high gear.
