Chief Human Resources Officer, USA
This International Women’s Day and every day, we are proud to recognize our inspiring women leaders and allies at JLL.
Who is a female inspiration/role model to you and why?
I have many women who have inspired me to reach further and believe in my own abilities. Recently, I am most inspired by younger women who are newly entering the workforce and who are bringing fresh perspectives to what it means to achieve their ambitions. Two of those women are my daughters, Sarah and Madeline. Each of them has demonstrated courage to be true to their own definitions of what success looks like to them, and they have been uncompromising on the values and ethics of the fields of work that they have chosen and the type of companies that they are willing to join. While they have chosen very different paths, they are both contributing to making the world a better place!
Why does inclusion matter to you?
Everyone deserves to be recognized for their strengths, their talents, and their potential contributions, and this can only be achieved in an environment that is safe, accepting and inclusive of everyone. We learn from our differences and become better individuals and stronger teams when we are willing to embrace diversity in its broadest definition.
