“Read Our Turn and you’ll understand how Canada’s own Kirstine Stewart joined the ranks of other stand-out technology leaders like Marissa Mayer and Sheryl Sandberg. Kirstine’s career is inspiring, and the ideas and strategies she shares about how to lead in times when change is the only constant are common-sense, down-to-earth and yet revolutionary. This is a great read from a leader I respect and admire.” —Arlene Dickinson
“Having spent nearly a decade working with Kirstine, I’ve seen these ideas in action and know they work! In Our Turn, she’s written a new blueprint for leadership and creativity. She has also delivered an honest look at how and why she has been so successful—and shows you practical ways that you can be successful, too.” —George Stroumboulopoulos
“I have known Kirstine for over twenty years as a colleague and a friend. In Our Turn, she has delivered a priceless read for any woman navigating the ins and outs of the working world. As I read, I made a list of every young and not so young woman I want to share it with, from my nieces to my employees to my girlfriends and my female peers. This is the time for all of us to speak up and share our vision for the working world of the future.” —Debbie Travis

The author began her working life as a “girl Friday” at a film distribution house after earning a degree in English Literature at the University of Toronto. Through initiative and hard work, she progressed through a series of jobs to become head honcho at venerable CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), and eventually to her current position as the first managing director for Twitter Canada. And she’s the mother of two daughters. Women in business are still paid less than men, still carry most of the home-front workload and are biologically designated to lose their place in line when they take maternity leave. It’s difficult to achieve that holy trinity of balance between job, marriage and parenthood.
Stewart describes the “glass cliff” which is not the same as the “glass ceiling”. In the interests of demonstrating that they are equal opportunity employers, male managers often throw a women into a losing situation, then blame her when it tanks. An example of this is appointing Kim Campbell as Prime Minister when the Conservatives were facing a losing election, or Mary Barra to run General Motors when their ignition switch crisis was linked to dozens of deaths and multi-million-car recalls.Read more ›
