Why did you join the Rise Up Leadership Council?

I was moved by speakers at Rise Up’s annual breakfast in 2016, just post-election. Rise Up was the perfect fit for me at a critical time for women in the U.S. and around the world.

What is your favorite way to contribute to the Leadership Council?

I enjoy introducing others to Rise Up because I think their model is so impressive. I enjoy learning from and interacting with Rise Up staff locally or around the world, and happily provide an audience or encouragement for their continued hard work.

What has been your favorite Leadership Council experience?

Attending the UN Commission on the Status of Women in New York in 2017. It opened my eyes to so many cultures and committed leaders from around the world. It was also a great way to bond with my fellow Leadership Council members.
