Lucinda Jackson worked for decades in the male-dominated science world and faced sexism, harassment, and discouragement. But along the way Jackson learned how to empower herself by recognizing and utilizing her past, identifying her vision and core values for decision-making in the present, and intentionally planning for her future Next Acts after a long, structured academic and corporate career. With real-life, personal examples, Jackson shares tried-and-true tips, tricks, and behaviors that worked in overcoming shame, self-blame, and lack of confidence to become an authentic, purposeful leader.
