Author Anne Devereux-Mills joins host Susan Wingate on Thursday, Dialogue Prime Time when she talks about her latest book, The Parlay Effect: How Female Connection Can Change the World


Anne Devereux-Mills is a seasoned connector, speaker, author and advocate who spent the first half of her career building and running advertising agencies in NYC as Chairman and CEO. When hit with progressing cancer, she took time to reassess her career and hierarchy of needs. In 2012, before the #MeToo movement, she founded Parlay House, a salon-style series of gatherings which includes over 5,000 women across the globe.

She is committed to issues about inclusion and empowerment. Beyond Parlay House, Anne works with SHE-CAN an organization that mentors next generation female leaders coming from post-genocide countries.


In The Parlay Effect-How Female Connection Can Change the World, Anne Devereux-Mills uses her insights as Founder of Parlay House to show how small actions can create a cascade of positive change, in your life and in the lives of others.

When cancer stripped her of everything that had been her identity, she set out on a path to rediscover herself and recreate her life. Recognizing that she was missing authentic relationships that were not based on what she “did” for a living, but what she cared about as a person, in 2012 she founded Parlay House, a now-international series of salons that brings together diverse groups of women to talk about topics they rarely discuss. As the gatherings grew, she saw how they triggered small actions among participants and resulted in waves of connection and support well beyond the live gatherings. She dubbed that cascade “The Parlay Effect.”
