In Our Turn, Kirstine Stewart, Twitter's VP of North American media partnerships - and recently named as one of Canadian Business's Power 50 of 2016 list because she 'helps women discover their leadership potential' - draws on her extensive experience to share her smart and practical approach to business. Kirstine Stewart has joined the ranks of technology leaders Sheryl Sandberg and Marissa Mayer, but she has come to that position by a very different route. She got her first job when she applied for an entry-level position at a film distribution house. Having worked her way up from the bottom - under women and men, leaders good and bad - she believes it's time we looked past the question of how women might create change in the working world and exploit the fact that profound change is already under way. The digital revolution, and the wave of millennials who are entering the work force with very different expectations than the generations who preceded them, have created an environment that demands a new style of leader - one with attributes and perspectives that make women the natural front-runners. The opportunity is there. The question Stewart poses and then tackles is how do we seize it? Whether you're the CEO or the fledgling administrative assistant, there is something for you in Our Turn.
