Chief Operating Officer, Edlio
Archer was a great place for us to get involved. What Archer is doing here and what the School is able to build falls in line with what Edlio is trying to do. We realize how big of a network we have and we have a social responsibility to go beyond the day-to-day work. What we did with the STEM Symposium is hopefully just the first step.
We look for opportunities to go outside of our network and connect with parents and students. The more of these opportunities we can find, the more we can fulfill our social responsibility.
There are challenges to being a woman in the workforce. When I started at Edlio, I was the only woman on the executive team, and that was a big deal. Now, we have another female executive on the team, as well as one on the board. We pay really close attention to who we hire. If there is one less girl that has to face these challenges because of the difference I can make or that Edlio can make, I would love to help with that. Instead of giving up, I use my position to make a difference.
