Through her work as the founder and CEO of the Women’s Business Development Council in Connecticut, Fran Pastore has had the privilege of knowing and working with remarkable and accomplished women. In every episode, Fran will be speaking with influential women whose stories have had an impact on her and they will do the same for you. Their stories will excite and inspire you to conquer your fears, take a stand for yourself and break down the barriers that stand in your way. We may cover timely topics like racial and gender inequality and the importance of advocacy and voting, but mostly we’ll be sharing the personal journeys of extraordinary women.
