Restarting My Career – “Donna” Walks Away From It All

What do you do when something unexpected happens in your career? As part of our series “Restarting My Career,” we talk with Donna, an Ivy League educated attorney. She was making a seven-figure income at a major New York law firm. Donna had broken the glass ceiling by becoming the firm’s first black woman partner. And then she walked away from it all. Donna shares with Protege Podcast the arduous journey in her early career, and the liberating feeling she now enjoys pondering what’s next for her life. A powerful and provocative conversation about achievement, fortitude and reimagining your career.
