Have you ever been so excited about accomplishing something that you wanted to let the whole world know, YOU DID IT!

Unfortunately, being a woman, I have always been acutely aware of the lack of female representation in 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.

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 [...]

Keep your glasses handy and your contact lenses soaking in their solution. I am not referring to your eyesight vision, but your hindsight vision.
