Marisa's Pick: Tribe by Sebastian Junger

Lyn's Pick: Darling, You Can’t Do Both by Janet Kestin and Nancy Vonk
Darling, You Can't Do Both
Lyn Wineman is the President & Chief Strategist of B-Corp Certified advertising agency, KidGlov. She says: "This book really speaks to women in the workforce and to owning the type of work and work environment that you want to be in. When I read it… I just had tears rolling down my face. I wish I would have had those words and phrases 25 years ago."

Emily's Pick: Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection. It will spark a new spirit of truth—and trust—in our organizations, families, schools, and communities.
Emily Kiloh is Our Gorongosa's Director of Brand Communications. She says: "I love all of Brene Brown's work, and this book really opened up something for me in terms of how important vulnerability is for the full human experience!"
