Mission Matters:
World's Leading Entrepreneurs Reveal Their Top Tips To Success (Women in Business Vol.1 - Edition 5) Paperback – November 2, 2020

“Learning to embrace and celebrate being different opened a window in my universe which gave me an abundance of perspectives, thoughts, and ideas which became the foundation of my life and my career.” -Rita Kakati-Shah

Kakati-Shah also writes about the evolution of leadership quality measurements, exploring the Intelligence Quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ), and the increasingly recognized Decency Quotient (DQ), which also factors in key measurements of honesty, kindness, and integrity. 

This book of women business leaders aims to serve as a platform to continue the discussion around diversity and inclusion globally.
