International Women’s Day 2013

By Cindy Chin, CLC Advisors, LLC CEO


We must carry forward the work of the women who came before us and ensure our daughters have no limits on their dreams, no obstacles to their achievements, and no remaining ceilings to shatter.
President Barack Obama, United States of America

One of my mother’s roles was the responsibility for managing the implementation of telecommunication lines for a major American telecom company in Afghanistan in the early 1990’s and then in Kosovo during the conflicts in Bosnia and Serbia. I used to listen in on her conference calls while entering data into spreadsheets during my academic studies. It was because she opened her door of her office that I do the same for my sisters on this earth, daughter, and the men that support us.

I encourage you to do the same by responding to calls or emails from women, their offers to meet for coffee, commitments to meetings, listen to their ideas, give excellent feedback (believe me, your opinion matters when someone asks), make introductions, and INVEST in them. Trust me, you will get more than you asked for in return, watch communities and the world change around them.
