Over the course of a year, Selena Rezvani interviewed women executives in various industries, roles, and job functions, including Jamie McCourt, president of the Los Angeles Dodgers; Denise Incandela, president of Saks Direct at Saks Fifth Avenue; Roxanne Spillett, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America; and Naomi C. Earp, chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
The result is The Next Generation of Women Leaders, a penetrating, eye-opening, and ultimately empowering narrative filled with stories of remarkable women who navigated the leadership maze and triumphed.
While the leadership landscape may be shifting in women's favor, women are nowhere near an equal presence in leadership roles when compared to men.
Rezvani's achievement was to engage some extraordinarily accomplished women as mentors, each of whom provided tools and information that young women can use to shape their own careers. The Next Generation of Women Leaders encourages younger women to be their own advocates when it comes to professional growth and advancement, and it provides tangible how-tos on negotiating the workplace as a woman.
The book offers a foreword by Gail Evans, the highest-ranking woman executive ever at CNN, and provides a far-reaching bibliography of significant materials. Works cited examine gender dynamics while simultaneously drawing on business classics. The book includes 30 interviews with highly accomplished business women, including:

"Can women really have a life and a leadership career? Selena Rezvani applies her wealth of experience observing and writing about talent management to answer the question affirmatively with wit and wisdom. In a conversational, narrative style packed with personal stories, useful tools, and relevant data, The Next Generation of Women Leaders is an informative and practical guide for young women building leadership careers that enhance rather than sideline their lives. Next Generation is also a <em>must read</em> for corporate executives and directors competing for leadership talent."
—Lindsay Thompson, Ph.D., Professor at The Johns Hopkins University Carey School of Business and author of The Moral Compass: Leadership for a Free World
