Women were coming into their own, working hard to carve out new roles for themselves at home and in sports, culture, politics, and business. The door opening for women to enjoy the same “playing fields” in life as men was one thing, but the physical reality of being on literal playing fields was still a challenge for many women – including Lisa Lindahl.

Helping America’s high-achieving students fulfill their dreams High-achieving high school students often do not get the support they should in school. Education reforms such as No Child Left Behind “created strong incentives for schools to focus all their energy on helping low-performing students get over a modest ‘proficiency’ bar,” but “ignored the educational needs of high achievers,” according to the report High Stakes for High Achievers.

Through its Congress of Future Medical Leaders and Congress of Future Science & Technology Leaders, annual gatherings that expose students to top leaders in their fields, young people from across America are getting the skills, motivation, guidance and mentorship they need to achieve their goals. “There is a misconception that...
