Networks Women Need

Successful women aren’t like the rest of us – when it comes to how they approach networking.

Research shows that successful women have structurally different networks than successful men (as well as other women) – and that they use their networks differently.

In Networks Women Need, J. Kelly Hoey author of Build Your Dream Network explores the factors that lead to success for women, synthesizing a range of scientific research on the importance of networks for women’s lives and careers together with anecdotal evidence, and career stories pulled from her network. Combine all this with Kelly’s unique style of transforming concepts into actionable, practical advice, The Networks Women Need is a roadmap for leveraging networks in a new way and creating your own career success.

Kelly is currently beta testing the Networks Women Need content and here’s what women are saying:

Kelly is a powerhouse woman. With Networks Women Need, she is creating a space for women around the world to rise by lifting up other women”.
– Mercè Labordena, PhD, EU Senior Policy Advisor

I’ve felt frustrated, overwhelmed, and hopeless in navigating my career goals. Kelly’s Networks Women Need insights have helped me refine my networking. I now have a clearer vision of where I want to take my career, along with the motivation to do so.”
– Michelle Rivas, Graduate Advisement and Student Development Director
