Penny co-wrote the book, “She’s Not Your Competition” with Penny Webb, as a contribution to the CONVERSATION that women, particularly in the workforce, spend too much time seeing one another as competitors rather than allies. Written as an informal and engaging book, it addresses an issue that is relevant for all women – from the young high school student to the senior grandmother – how do you get ahead, making the most of your own passion and opportunities AND champion the same in others.
