11 powerful women on making connections and getting what you want

Marie Claire’s second annual New Guard list features 50 of America’s most connected women. These women know people, really important people. But they haven’t always been this good at networking (cue: started from the bottom…).

Fusion’s Alicia Menendez (who also made the list!) sat down with some of the boss ladies on the list to talk about how to make connections when you’re just starting your career and how to nurture them post connectivity. From the Writer and Co-Director of “Frozen” to the Executive Producer of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder, these women know what they’re talking about. You’re going to want to take notes people!
