Strong Women: Are there other kinds?

Mom on the 60’s, apparently not a fan of instant photography…

ripple_effect_women_in_the_worldMary Carol was an orphan at 7, working full-time at Polaroid ten years later, my mom at 18, and a college graduate the year I graduated high-school. Then she worked as a cardiac-care nurse for 29 years, often the 11p-7a “graveyard” shift so that she’d be present when her sons got home from school. As a mother, she’s had many colorful challenges presented by 3 sons, and has handled them all with firmness and strength. Fortunately for me, my mother’s example etched an image of resilience and self-sufficiency, so it’s no surprise I’m very comfortable in this life surrounded by strong and independent women. I don’t know anything else.

Today, Kronos is holding a tweet chat about women in the workplace in honor of International Women’s Day, coming up on Saturday, March 8th . Jump in with your views today at 12pm ET using the Twitter hashtag, #Kronoschat. If you’re new to the tweet chat thing, Tweetchat.com is a good platform to use…

Here’s a wonderful infographic from Catalyst, titled The Ripple Effect: What’s Good for Women is Good for the World, plus a few of the posts I’ve written about the strong women in my life. I’m grateful for all of them.

    Hi Leo,

    I really enjoy your unique insights into women issues and business and find it refreshing to come across someone that deals with it so clearly. Apart from thanking you for some of the content I’ve read, I also wanted to share with you an infographic I found on Twitter that I would would fit in well with your content.

    Hope you’ll be able to use it and make it one of your great story!

    All the best,

    Jenny

      Thanks, Jenny. I love the infographic! I’ll neet to think on it awhile. I’m fortunate to have strong women as examples all around me, including a 6 y/o granddaughter who keeps me on my toes!
