I recently attended a meeting with a group of good people, many of whom I had not seen in person for a long time. In fact, it was the first time this particular group had gathered around a table in nearly two years. As each person joined the group, they were inevitably greeted with warmth [...]

I have always been someone that wanted to have a career of my own. In 2018, I was a newlywed, recently graduated from graduate school, and working for my hometown in my field of study. That was until my husband, who had just been commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army, was notified that [...]

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 [...]

Several months ago, I was given the opportunity to participate in a formal mentoring program as a mentor. Mentoring wasn’t new territory for me. Through the years I have had opportunities to mentor many employees and always enjoyed that aspect of my leadership role. In this program, mentees identified specific goals they wanted to achieve, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Brigetta Uta’i: No More Standing on the Sidelines

By |2021-11-17T20:28:32-07:00November 8th, 2021|Blog, BWF, Opinion, Policy|0 Comments

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 [...]
