Called Our Turn, her first book is due out in spring 2015 via Random House Canada and will draw on her experiences at both CBC (where she was head of English services) and Twitter Canada.

According to Random House, the book will look at the opportunities new media technologies have created for women in the corporate world.

“Women have long been pushed to conform to what people have valued as traditional masculine leadership traits in business,” Stewart said, in a release. “Now that business values, and the values of what is expected of leadership, have changed, women are primed to take their place among leaders at the top.”

The book follows the success of Lean In by Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, which has sold more than one million copies since its release in March. Like Lean In, Our Turn will look at female leaders in the business world and how they fit into shifts in culture and commerce.

“Kirstine Stewart is leaping ahead with the conversation started by Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In, showing us why the time is now for new ideas and female leaders, and how the new nimble business models and the new generation of women and men entering the work force will create success with a more female face,” said Anne Collins, publisher of the Knopf Random Canada publishing group.
