Seems I’m late celebrating a lot of things these days. Thanks to Monica, I’m only a day late honoring International Women’s Day. Monica celebrated female literary characters. The theme for the year was Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women
Wish I’d been prepared… I could have scanned photos from my fire service days. I embodied that theme for those 12+ years. At the start of my career, I focused heavily on training; I first took every single class I could find, including enough fire science classes to have a minor in said area of study, and then I became an instructor. Technically, I still AM certified as an instructor, but I haven’t taught in at least 10 years. Then, near the end of my career, I was very involved in equal opportunity issues.
Of course, now I’m passionate about the Junior League, where women harness their power, develop their potential and change the world through action in their own communities. I can’t mention the League without noting that our own Kids in the Kitchen event takes place NEXT SATURDAY!
Do other women inspire you?
