born 1987

When Caroline Ghosn met Amanda Pouchot their first day on the job at consulting firm McKinsey, she had no idea the only other woman on her team would become her "peer mentor" and close friend. It wasn't long before they were applying what they'd learned to help other young women. After moving on from their first start-up, the two women co-founded Levo League ~ Lean In for Millennials. 

Caroline and the company have grown astoundingly in just a few years. With  $7 million in investment and millions of young women and experienced professionals who share Caroline's mission of "democratizing success," Levo is taking on the Old Boys' Club. And, offering an alternative...with an open-door policy.
