For women in the business world, it can be incredibly helpful to hear advice and tips from other females who have already been extremely successful in their field. It can be so inspiring to see another woman do something like start her own business that takes off in a huge way, climb the corporate ladder and become an executive, or just come up with something new and creative. This is why it's so important to give these women a platform where they can speak and share their experiences. Bustle Digital Group recently debuted L.E.A.D.S. (Learning Empowerment Advancement Dinner Series) events to highlight the company's mission of giving women a platform to tell their story, while helping others learn from their experiences. The first L.E.A.D.S. event took place on April 26 at The Standard Highline and was co-hosted by Where Are The Boss Ladies, and featured an evening of discussion with top female executive leaders in media and advertising. On Monday, June 25, Bustle Digital Group hosted its second L.E.A.D.S. event in conversation with Sujean Lee, the COO of Milk Bar. Lee spoke with Bustle Digital Group Editor-in-Chief Kate Ward about the cult bakery's longtime success and how a brand can stay relevant without becoming a fad.

Milk Bar, as you probably know, is a wildly popular innovative bakery in New York City that offers up much-loved products like Crack Pie, Birthday Cake Truffles, Cereal Milk Soft Serve, and Compost Cookies. Milk Bar's founder, chef Christina Tosi, can basically do no wrong when it comes to creating really amazing desserts. Lee is the current COO of Milk Bar, and previously worked as the Assistant Staff Secretary at the White House for the president, and at Chobani. She has gone through so much in her career, and it's hard to find someone better to give you advice on how to kickstart your own!
