For more than 5 years the FQ Lounge, which bills itself as the home for equality, has worked to bring women forward in the workplace by creating more awareness around the challenges that keep women from thriving.

Founder Shelley Zalis, CEO of The Female Quotient, said we are going backwards on all measures, from tackling unconscious bias, recognizing trailblazing women, providing career development opportunities, rallying to narrow the gender wage gap, and bringing men into the equation to truly foster inclusive environments collectively.

Based on her career journey and pivotal “heartbeat moments,” Shelley provides tips for following your heart. Watch this Top of Mind on purpose and passion. Nadine Dietz is chief community officer at Adweek and host of the CMO Moves podcast.
