Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.

As many of you know, Mary and Lisa have been working on a book that will be coming out before the holidays and will be the first title from CCI Press.  The “GWIC Book” (the title will be announced soon), is a compilation of submissions from women in compliance sharing wit, wisdom and experiences from their work and lives.

This process was new to Mary and Lisa, and they provide some insight into the process of being a first-time author up until this point.  They talk about the importance of having a good publisher and editor as they had with Sarah Hadden of CCI Press, and how they were guided and supported through this process.  They also talk about how the GWIC Book is a companion to the podcast, and that it is about women and their experiences in ethics and compliance as opposed to substantive guides and information.

They also talk about their biggest surprises, what they learned about themselves and the GWIC community (spoiler alert: it reinforced what an enthusiastic and supportive community we have); and a little bit about the book release and launch events.
