“Don’t limit your challenges; challenge your limits.” –Anonymous

We educated ourselves. We proved our leadership and value to the business world. We shattered the proverbial glass ceiling. But, the glass pieces are reforming; changing into, what I like to call, a glass dome – high enough for us to rise through the professional ranks, but still clear enough for us to see where there are not enough of us – in the C-Suite.


It’s a proven fact that when professional women executives run a company, they lead that business to increased revenue. For example, in 2012, when hedge funds were losing money, a study of hedge funds run by women found that they outperformed funds run by men. And, much has been written about women’s corporate leadership style involving more listening and cooperation, leading to women-run companies outperforming those run by men. Now CNN says that there has been no significant difference in the number of women executive positions for the past four years in a row, and I am outraged. So, I will take this outrage and channel it into the positive energy necessary to affect change!

A new day has dawned…a day of inclusion, acceptance and understanding. Welcome to the new diversity! It isn’t your grandmother’s diversity; it’s ours! And, it’s about everyone – women, Asians, disabled people, veterans, LGBT, Hispanics, Blacks and Whites because… Diversity and Inclusion is America! And, it means good business!

Ten years ago if you provided a quality product or service in a timely manner according to expectations, you created a client for life, regardless of the price point. However, with the economic challenges we face today, maintaining brand loyalty is more complex than a smiling face. While traditional factors such as quality and relationships are of important value, aspects such as evolution, feedback and uniqueness play a larger role.

Q:  Who founded The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) and why?

A:  When Evelyn Lauder and Dr. Larry Norton founded BCRF in 1993, they realized the irrefutable power of research. They also recognized what was needed to gain real ground in the fight against breast cancer — the freedom and security to thrive and innovate. Their approach was simple: identify those people with the most promising ideas, then give them the money and flexibility to pursue them with as little bureaucracy as possible.
