Women’s History Month • Week 4
District Manager of WM
What’s New at WM?
WM is implementing a “People First” atmosphere which welcomes and observes everyone. Which includes diversity and inclusion of all people in different walks of life. On a monthly basis we showcase our impact groups that include WEN, LGTBQ, Valor, Unified, and Prism.
Does women’s history month hold a special meaning to you?
I like that we are reminded of the women that helped fulfill our destiny.
Is there a woman in history that you look up or admire? If so, why? Does their life/work affect you now? If so, how?
I have chosen to showcase Leonora O’Reilly. She paved the way for women in the labor force and she was an activist, feminist, suffragist. ]Equality and equal pay for women is what she fought for. As well, she pioneered the road for empowerment for women and this movement enables females to have a voice and a vote in today’s workforce.
What challenges do you believe women face today that you would like to see change?
I feel that there is a stigma which, in today’s world still dictates a woman’s abilities, we have come a long way in this area, yet still more actions are necessary to open minds.
