With the upcoming release of the latest book in the Outlier Series, Ingredients of Outliers: Women Game Changers, the Outlier Team decided it was time to reveal more of the women who are featured in the book (for the two previously announced women, click here). And without further adieu, it is our pleasure to announce Christine Jones and Dr. Mildred M. G. Olivier, who were interviewed and featured in our upcoming book Ingredients of Outliers: Women Game Changers! We are humbled and thankful to work with these women on a book highlighting the accomplishments of the extraordinary, and inspiring hope in women and men of all ages to do what they previously thought was not possible. Now for a little more on these great women:
Christine Jones has been campaigning for the 2014 Arizona Gubernatorial office and became an official candidate after qualifying for the AZ ballot after turning in 21,580 nominating petition signatures in late April 2014 Jones, who previously worked as the chief legal counsel and vice president at GoDaddy, made it a priority to be leader in the fight for a better, safer online experience for users, particularly children. She stays involved in many charitable and volunteer projects including providing pro-bono legal work, and lecturing on internet safety to youth, while mentoring young women in a variety of subjects.

Mildred M. G. Olivier, M.D. is the CEO and founder of Midwest Glaucoma Center, PC. The Mission of the Midwest Glaucoma Center, PC is to save the sight of people with this eye disease. Dr. Olivier is also an at-large member of the Board of Trustees for the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO). She has been a key member of the Academy’s Task Force on Haiti Recovery. Dr. Olivier’s work has earned various honors including the American Glaucoma Society’s Humanitarian Award (2012), and AAO’s Secretariat Award (2011).
The goal of this book in the Outlier Series, which highlights women, is to act as a surrogate mentor for young women, and anyone out there, man or woman, looking to achieve more than they previously imagined was possible. Stay tuned for more news on the upcoming release!
