SPOTLIGHT ON LEADERSHIP AMBASSADOR:
Joesy Borman
"A few months ago, I spoke at the Women & Power Symposium in Phoenix, AZ and told my story. It was the first time I had told this story in front of a group of strangers. It was scary to be that open and vulnerable, but it was also quite freeing and rewarding. I believe sharing stories is one of the most effective ways to build relationships, influence positive change and create a culture of acceptance."
