Twitter Canada managing director Kirstine Stewart is set to publish her first book with Random House Canada in spring 2015.

According to a press release, Our Turn is about women in leadership roles “in a time of generational shifts in the workforce and changing corporate values and opportunities.” Derived in part from a speech Stewart gave at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management in October, the book will draw on her experiences in her job at Twitter Canada, as well as her previous roles as CBC English services executive vice-president and programming vice-president for Alliance Atlantis. Stewart will also look at how new-media technologies encourage flexibility and creativity in business, and the opportunities that are opening up for women as a result.

Our Turn was acquired by Knopf Random Canada Publishing Group publisher Anne Collins and Random House of Canada president Kristin Cochrane from agent Chris Bucci of Anne McDermid & Associates.
