Join us for this special conversation with Ilene and Bram Bluestein. Ilene Gordon and Bram Bluestein “leaned in” together. Over almost four decades of marriage, they have raised two children, supported two grandchildren, and embraced two high-impact careers. Ilene ultimately served as CEO of a Fortune 500 company and Bram held senior leadership positions at several of the most respected consulting firms in the world. Along the way, Ilene and Bram learned how to navigate their personal and professional journeys, together.
