General PublicCareer & Leadership


Join Randi Braun, Author of Something Major: The New Playbook for Women at Work, as she shares her tips for cracking the leadership code and building a work life you love.

Join us as we kick off Women’s History Month with author and women’s leadership expert, Randi Braun.
Women are natural leaders but they’ve been taught to play the game by an outdated set of rules. So certified executive coach, Randi Braun, wrote them a new playbook.

On the first day of the book’s release, Braun will sit down with the women of the Harvard Business School alumni network for a fireside chat about her new book and how women leaders can thrive in the future of work.

In Braun’s book, Something Major: The New Playbook for Women at Work, women will discover how to play the leadership game on their own terms and win when it comes to achieving their goals: whether it’s cracking the code on your self-doubt by ditching perfectionism, external validation, and the tyranny of your inner critic, or learning new tactics for owning your message (don’t miss 16 things she forbids you to say at work). Braun’s book provides a fresh take on one of the most tremendous challenges of our time: empowering women at work to chart their own course to the top — dialing up confidence and fulfillment, and dialing down burnout in the process.

In Something Major: The New Playbook for Women at Work, Braun takes the field and re-writes the plays of the game. Her book delivers stories for today’s women leaders in a conversational style that’s filled with sage advice.

– Insights into the New Playbook for women’s leadership
– Tactical strategies to help you succeed in building an authentic work-life that you love
– Fireside chat with the author of the book
– Q&A session with the author

Participants must register by Noon on February 28th to receive details on joining the discussion. The Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event.

Please note that no refunds will be issued.
