This is the seventh episode in our ongoing series What Matters Most in America.
Adam Green (find him on Twitter and check out Bold Progressives) is co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC). For four years, he worked as Director of Strategic Campaigns and Civic Communications Director for MoveOn.org. Previously, Adam served as the Democratic National Committee’s press secretary in Oregon for the 2004 presidential campaign, communications director for the New Jersey Democratic Party in 2003, and press secretary for the top winning Democratic U.S. Senate race of 2002. He has a B.A. from George Washington University and a law degree from the University of Virginia. He is a frequent contributor on both MSNBC and CNN.
Sylvia Ann Hewlett (read her new book!) is an economist and the CEO of Hewlett Consulting Partners. She is also the founder and Chair Emeritus of the Center for Talent Innovation. In her scholarship and consultancy work Hewlett has focused on the “value of difference” and the challenges and opportunities faced by women, people of color, LGBT employees and other previously excluded groups. She has forged a signature style of enquiry which blends hard data and rigorous analysis with in-depth story-telling and concrete solutions. She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Century Association.
Hewlett is the author of 17 Harvard Business Review articles and 16 critically acclaimed books, including When the Bough Breaks (winner of a Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Book Award); Off- Ramps and On-Ramps; Winning the War for Talent in Emerging Markets; Forget a Mentor, Find a Sponsor (an Audible best seller); Executive Presence (an Amazon “Best Book of the Month,”), and The Sponsor Effect (Financial Times “Business Book Of The Month.”) She has been recognized as the Most Influential International Thinker by HR magazine and honored by Google with its Global Diversity Award.
Retiring stiff paper gowns and unrelatable medical advice, Dr. Jennifer Ashton (read her new book!), a Board-certified Ob-Gyn, author and TV medical correspondent, breaks the barrier between doctor and patient. Affectionately referred to as your all-in-one “BFF” / Ob-Gyn, Dr. Jennifer Ashton marries an unparalleled medical background with an accessible “girl’s-girl” attitude. Though Dr. Ashton can easily speak to the latest beauty and fashion trends, this Ivy League graduate means business when it comes to women’s health.
From the onset, you might wonder how Dr. Ashton does it. Hailing from a family of 6 physicians and 1 nurse, this mother of two possesses a uniquely well-rounded understanding of the human body. Leading by example, Dr. Ashton not only “talks the talk,” but “walks the walk.” When she’s not in the office, she can be found training for triathlons or following her very own Five-Day/Two- Day Eating Plan, or trying out the latest fitness craze. Dr. Ashton demonstrates first-hand how to embrace and feel empowered at every stage of womanhood. Dr. Ashton is relatable in everything she does.
