In this interview, I had an opportunity to interview Angela Watson, Vice President of International Sales, Latin America, Caribbean and Canada at UPSabout the role of women in business. Most specifically about the changing role of women in the workplace: How corporations like UPS embrace women employees, suppliers/vendors, C-suite decision makers.
She shared so many pearls of wisdom regarding being a woman in business that I hope you too will glean something from … and please do pass this insight along to other women in business who you know.
Let’s collaborate to make the workplace friendly for women and as we learn and grow from each other, we will witness a continual improvement toward greater supplier diversity.
