Description

Leigh Gallagher’s mom always told her, “Do what you love and the money will follow.” Journalism may not always be the most lucrative career, but Leigh has proven her mother right. This powerhouse of a writer not only made a name for herself in journalism, she was crowned Senior Editor at Large at Fortune Magazine – not an easy feat in the male-dominated business world.
Now Director of External Affairs at Google, Leigh is still going strong. She’s an advocate for women everywhere, and she’s taking her own advice: putting herself forward, asking lots of questions, and most importantly, asking for what she wants.
