You know who this is?

It’s Madeleine Albright, the first woman to become Secretary of State.


said, “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”

When I speak to HR audiences, I say that all of the time. And I mean it. In every aspect of my life, I am constantly advocating on behalf of other women. And I trust that other women are advocating for me.

Are all HR women perfect? No. But most of them are okay and deserve grace and the opportunity to grow. I have benefitted fromthe generosity of other HR women who know my flaws but continue to see my potential.

So why am I talking about this?
