Digital Advertising Book Club: What Female Leaders are Reading Right Now

In January, we published our inaugural list of Women to Watch in Digital Advertising, a celebration of the next generation of female digital media leaders. The women we profiled in that piece have their fingers on the pulse of what matters in our industry today. That’s why we’ve asked them about the books they love, the books that have made an impact on their lives and even just those that they’re enjoying at the moment.
