I was so excited to attend the 5th Annual Women’s History Brunch. The lineup of speakers looked interesting and it was a chance for me to network and meet like-minded women with similar goals. I wasn’t disappointed. Though there were a number of highlights, nothing was more moving then to see three of our future female leaders speak to their goals and who influenced them.
As a women’s leadership trainer, I find it important to align myself with women organizations and groups whose mission and values are similar to mine. For the past year, I have been an active member and Movement Builder for 9to5, and I am proud of it! The organization does an outstanding job fighting for the rights of women in the workplace. In addition, they challenge lawmakers to stand up and make a change. Because of their hard work and dedication to the cause, I continue to join them in the fight as a loyal member.
