“The jobs are the tool that is the bigger part of the conversation around women and working and what are some of the ways that we can keep women in the workforce so ultimately we can keep women moving on the track toward being in leadership positions.” — Stacey Delo, Maybrooks

Something her mom drilled into her:
Dance of The Dissident Daughter by Sue Monk Kidd. In it she talks about attaching yourself to your “Golden Thread,” which she described as being a tether to a “voice” you have felt all along, this whisper of who you are and what your best life can feel like. And she said that even in the darkest of times, that Golden Thread glows – you just have to hang on to it and develop a little faith that it’s got your back. — Momma Strong Interview
