In this Jam Session, Pamela Barnes, president and CEO of EngenderHealth, and Moira Forbes, president and publisher of ForbesWoman, discuss the importance of taking risks and how leaving your comfort zone can help you realize your own potential and achieve professional and personal success.

Pamela Barnes knows a thing or two about taking risks. She decided to leave a successful 20-year career in corporate finance to join the non-profit sector and pursue her personal passion of women’s health. She went on to hold executive positions at Planned Parenthood and the International Trachoma Initiative and more recently served as president and CEO of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. She is now the president and CEO of EngenderHealth, a leading global non-profit organization focused on improving women’s health around the world. Pamela knows firsthand that there’s no easy or straight path in careers, and she shares insights for getting ahead.

Moira is president and publisher of ForbesWoman, a multi-media platform serving successful women in business and leadership. She is also the host of “Success with Moira Forbes,” a weekly video series on the Forbes Video Network featuring candid, one-on-one interviews with today’s top women leaders.
