As the great resignation continues, there have become more and more options for workers when it comes to making a career change. With the move to remote work since the pandemic and a national unemployment level just north of 3%, workers are not tied down to jobs that are commuting distance from their homes. Where [...]

While organizing my home office recently, I found a paper tucked inside a notebook — a school project about myself from when I was eight titled “Guess Who?” One section reads, “I like me because…” and in big sloppy letters hidden under red crayon I had written, “I can always reach my goals.” This discovery [...]

Jennifer Goodwin: Hold on a Second…Am I the Only Businesswoman in the Room?

By |2022-02-09T13:53:08-07:00February 9th, 2022|Blog, BWF, Opinion, Policy|0 Comments

Whether it is race, age, gender, or sexual orientation, I am sure we have all experienced being an "only" in the room at one point or another. Being an "only" can be extremely anxiety-inducing or simply feeling icky. Considering we spend 40+ hours each week in the workplace, it makes sense to want to feel [...]

Kimberly Flores: It’s Never Too Late to Reinvent Yourself

By |2022-01-20T09:33:35-07:00January 19th, 2022|Blog, BWF, Opinion, Policy|0 Comments

A movie or television trailer is supposed to catch your attention, but this time it felt like Netflix punched me in the gut. This particular trailer wasn’t flashy or over-dramatized, it was just real and raw and it certainly poured over the insecurities I had inherited in 2020 which had overflowed into 2021.  “Switching careers…in [...]

Have you ever been so excited about accomplishing something that you wanted to let the whole world know, YOU DID IT! But you didn’t because it felt awkward and you didn’t want to appear to be arrogant or maybe you thought they wouldn’t think your accomplishment was praiseworthy? I know I have and I am [...]

I am the youngest of six children and grew up with four brothers, so sports are most definitely my love language. It doesn’t matter what the conversation topic is, I’ll more than likely make a sports comparison. Unfortunately, being a woman, I have always been acutely aware of the lack of female representation in the [...]

Adaptability is a popular pandemic buzzword in a lot of offices. We’re told that the one most important – if not the most important – leadership skill is the ability to adapt. Good news, friends. By this standard, we are all leaders. I don’t know a soul who hasn’t twisted and contorted themselves during the [...]

I have always been a hard worker. While my co-workers took time off work to vacation, I saved my days off and my money, too. I figured that there would always be time for vacation when I was comfortably retired. Life, though, had something different in store for me. Last week, I was sent concerning [...]

As many organizations are turning their attention to equity, diversity, and inclusion activities, so often the starting (and sticking) point focuses on diversity. Why do companies get stuck here? Many times, it’s due to the focus being on checking a box. Unfortunately, just getting the right number of the right bodies doesn’t lead to all [...]
