Harvard Business Review Press
September 08, 2020
What does it take for women to succeed in a male-dominated world? The Grit Factor.
At age nineteen, Shannon Huffman Polson became the youngest woman ever to climb Denali, the highest mountain in North America. She went on to reach the summits of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Kilimanjaro and spent more than a decade traveling the world.
