When you hear Shelley Zalis describe the importance of advancing equality in the workplace, it is immediately inspiring. Before founding The Female Quotient in 2000, Zalis earned renown as the first woman to take market research from in-person to online. Following her instincts, in 2010, she sold the company for $80 million. A few years later, she encouraged several female friends to join her at the Consumer Electronics Show, where women were a clear minority among attendees and executives. That experience, and that group of women, sparked the idea to create The Female Quotient, now the largest female-led community aimed at balanced representation of women in executive ranks.
