Success in the Silicon Valley

Hello World!
I saw this great article and wanted to share it with you. 


https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/groundbreaking-business-leaders-silicon-valley-190329310.html

It celebrates success, offers great advice, and highlights achievements that everyone, no matter their background, can benefit from. For example, I just used  Task Rabbit and found it very easy, helpful, and cost effective for some help I needed. I will be using it again for sure! 

Based on some of the article comments I read, there is still fear and misunderstanding with regard to diversity. I think Archbishop Desmond Tutu had it right when he stated, "to be pro Black is not to be Anti White". To be pro women, LGBT, or any other category typically in the margins does not mean you hate all others, I believe it means that by focusing on those who haven't had the same level of rights or opportunities you work to make that happen. 

All people benefit when dignity and worth become the norm for all, not just a select few.

 I leave with a quote I liked from the article, a great reminder that difference can be celebrated not just tolerated!

The best person for a job


Hello World! 
I hope you are having a nice day. I am traveling and read this great article I had to share with you. It talked about women in sports, not as athletes but as coaches, managers, and other roles not previously held by women. It is exciting that the world is opening up and realizing women have talents and perspectives to offer, seen in the quote below.



The article from the airplane magazine also spoke of being open, following your passion, and knowing that one day- it will be normal for all people to go after all careers and it won't be the big deal it currently is right now (see the paragraph I photographed below). 


Until that day, I will continue to share stories, promote women and diversity, and advocate for inclusion and celebration of hard earned accomplishments. I feel in some small way, the success of any women is the success of all women, and I am grateful to be a part of it!


Here is wishing you success however you define it!

Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day

Hello World!
It is important to recognize that much progress has been made toward equality and much progress still needs to be made. We will not prosper if we exclude others. We must do our part to help people who are not like ourselves, to peacefully advocate for inclusion, to rethink the table at which we sit and look around at the people sitting there. No one is excluded from these responsibilities. They are challenging but exciting. It is my experience that in connecting with our commonalities we can explore and celebrate our differences and diversity. These differences matter because they are sparks for creativity, innovation, and the flames of our future. I am grateful for Martin Luther King Jr and everything he did for humanity. I will leave you with his words and hope you celebrated not with a day off but with a day of service to others.

The first web page

Hello World!
I saw this article about the first web page to go live around this time 25 years ago... It made me think how much has changed and how far the web has come, how much farther will it go? There is much to be learned and developed but we can all be a part of it! From girls who code to the user experience, we are all a part of this revolution!
