5 Tips for Running a Women-Centric Organization

By Sheryl Hickerson, CEO of Females & Finance on 3/11/22 1:15 PM

Women's History Month is a time many reflect on the challenges women have faced and overcame; except we are still in a space of change so many years later. So, March becomes a time of encouragement, empowerment, and exhaustion all at the same time. For many of us, myself included, this is just another day and month in our lives. 

If we expect real and lasting change to happen, then we must call upon all of those who do not look like us. We need our allies and diversity change agents to speak loud and proud - and only then will we start to round the corner towards equity. 

One formula I use while running a women-centric organization is called R.E.A.C.H. I created this more than 10 years ago and it continues to serve me well in 2022. It's pretty easy to remember.

What Memorial Day Means to Me: Letter from a New Veteran

By Jaquetta Gooden on 5/31/21 10:00 AM

Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor our fallen heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice, a day of remembrance for the 1.2 million men and women who answered the Nations call and protected the many freedoms that we have as Americans 

As a U.S. Army veteran with two combat tours and 20 years of active service, this day will always hold special meaning. I was 19 years old when I deployed for my first combat tour to AfghanistanIt was unlike anything I ever experienced  going on convoy missions, to being mortared on our fobs, I was and am always aware of how fortunate I am that I was one to make it back home.
