Best Story

I developed a leadership program for women in a technology company. Some executives didn't see the need for it initially but women were quitting at a higher rate than men. One executive told me that he didn't see the need for a program for women because he didn't see gender differences and didn't discriminate. I shared some research with him and I was able to run the program. Managers nominated the women in the program and had to agree to also take part in some training to support the learning. The program was very successful and participants had a higher level of retention and a higher level of promotion.

Origin Story

The first time I asked for a raise my boss said no and I was so embarrassed I wanted to quit. Instead, I went back the next day and asked him why. His answer was that it wasn't raise time. I didn't realize that my company had an annual time when raises were given. I asked him what I needed to do to get the best raise possible and several months later I got a great raise. That helped me to start on my journey to help other women to be more successful and learn how to make more money.
