Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a woman and CEO/Founder of a healthcare association for developmental disabilities professionals SYNERGY (Plus+), and as a journalist; I know all too well the strides in takes to thrive to my level of winning in what we would consider male dominated industries. I had to be willing to do away with the idea that I had to act like a man in order to be respected as a woman in technology and as a woman in media. I've learned to allow my authentic-self be the guide in showing me that what I have to offer as far as my skill set is concerned is more than enough to earn my seat at the table... If not; then I'll bring my own folding chair (in the words of the late Shirley Chisholm). It's an infinite journey of becoming and unbecoming all at the same time. Although it has taken me sometime to align with all I am or shall I say my "I AM", I've enjoyed the journey of destroying the idea of the glass ceiling phenomenon... For myself and for any other woman who dares to move in the direction of her full potential.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field
