IWD Co-chair Amy Glennon said she s glad that IWF is delving into the topic of happiness, and its impact on woman and leadership.  The notion of happiness can get pushed aside — we re  too busy ... It s not important right now … the world is too messy,” said Glennon.   But I m eager to hear what that could cost us and what we might want to do about it.”
