Movie picAuthor, lecturer and Huffington Post columnist Carlynne McDonnell has been a passionate and outspoken proponent of social justice and equality for over twenty five years.  She has worked in fields considered non-traditional for women and has personally seen and been on the receiving end of inappropriate and unequal/inequitable behavior.

She wrote “The Every Woman’s Guide to Equality” to push the agenda for women’s equality so she could see real change, now.  Carlynne believes that women can achieve more and go further if they are educated, smart and prepared. Real change for women can only be achieved with hard work, vigilance, and the commitment that our capabilities are limitless.

She has presented workshops and keynotes on women’s equality, leadership development and organizational strategy with women’s organizations and colleges and universities.
