Voices from Around the U.S.
"Behind every successful woman is herself."
"I was an executive in the 1970s and 1980s at a major government contractor in the Washington, D.C. area. I was very much in the minority as a woman, especially a woman of color. I am heartened by the increased opportunities in recent decades for my daughter and my granddaughter. I pray that the gender pay gap will continue to close and that the glass ceiling will disappear entirely."
-- Angeline Beach, former Assistant Director of Information Systems

“Up at 5, exercise until 5:45, 15 minutes to glance at the news, then grab coffee and pay bills, feed the pets, say morning to spouse, shower and dress, leave for work at 7, work a full day and commute home, start dinner at 6:45 and eat at 7:30, order groceries online for pickup, review health plan EOBs, read texts from kids, watch 15 minutes of TRMS, plan a friend’s retirement happy hour, then climb into bed. Empowering and absolutely exhausting!”
-- Celeste Flippen, Legility Director of Client Management
