"Valerio leaves the reader with some thought provoking questions as to where we go from here. In short, the book is an important read for anybody committed to developing and harnessing women's leadership talent." (Work, Employment & Society, 21 November 2011)
"The book has relevance across the range of all organizations including major companies, academic institutions and non-profit organizations. It has significance for every aspect of society - business, government, law, families, careers, and health.” (Publicnet.co.uk, November 2009)
"In any organization today, women leaders will help drive business growth and improved performance. Anna Marie Valerio’s Developing Women Leaders
is a practical guide that helps organizations not only to achieve this growth objective, but also to create the right opportunities for talented women to develop their careers and to advance within that company."
, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Executive Board, Wolters Kluwer
"Dr. Valerio’s thoughtful and thought-provoking book is essential reading for anyone who cares about the development of the next generation of leaders, regardless of gender. As a female president and CEO in a historically male-dominated industry, I recognize the value and insights offered in the book, and applaud the proactive approaches to gender issues in the workplace."
–Nancy Hill, President-CEO, American Association of Advertising Agencies
"Developing Women Leaders is a trove of useful advice for the advancement of women. Many talented women whose careers have stalled at mid-management can apply the book’s strategies to move into top-level careers. Women and men benefit when we have the most talented people leading organizations. Valerio offers something for everyone. There are great "tips" for women who want to advance their careers, administrators who control access to the top, and for human resource departments that can help to increase the number of women in leadership positions."
