In my working life, I've had a lot of jobs and I've learned a lot of skills. Starting when I was 14, filing records in my dad's dental office, I now have more than 40 years of experience in a variety of workplaces from summer camps to TV newsrooms; small one-person operations to large media companies. I had some strong female role models in broadcasting, also a male-dominated profession at the time I was coming up through the ranks, who taught me how to make decisions under pressure. But no workplace compares - even when only connected to each other virtually - to ShapiroCM.
I am proud to recognize my female co-workers pictured above: Jerelene Cooper, Eina Chin, Julia Schuchardt, Tiffany Vanderpool, Mary Anne Gonzalez-Nieves, Holly Fisher, Ketaki Agale and Janet Aviles. Because of you, I worker harder, I work smarter and I laugh and smile a lot.
I started off with the intention of writing a blog with the 5 or 10 reasons why ShapiroCM is a great place for women to work. But the reality is that for every reason it's a great place for women to work, it's a great place for anyone to work.
