Questions & Answers

What career advice do I have for women?
1) Stay resilient and gritty. It’s what got us here and what keeps us here. To paraphrase Nietzsche, “That which does not kill us only makes us stronger.”
2) Every day is an opportunity to learn something NEW. With the pace of technological advancement, we are both novices and masters. We learn and teach simultaneously every day.
3) Don’t be afraid to switch up your career. Gone are the days of staying in one job for the rest of your life. Find your passion, be flexible and take new opportunities as they come.
4) Trust that Everything happens for a reason. If it doesn’t feel right, then maybe it isn’t. Sometimes the answer to a prayer is no and sometimes the answer is to wait because something better is on its way.

The NEW Chapter for Women of Generation D

Last week saw many celebrations of International Women's Day. I was pleased and proud to be part of them and while at the fabulous Accenture event, I had an epiphany. Women of all ages struggle to be equal with a long path still ahead. In an age where youth seems to be valued over wisdom, there is a danger that we women of Generation D may be overlooked and forgotten. We need advocacy and mentors just as much for ourselves as do the generations of women who are coming behind us.
