Moving to Empower Women

The main goal of any for-profit organization is to make an impact while growing revenue. They make money by creating growth for their employees, their clients, and their community. Women can play a major part in helping organizations achieve this goal. In fact, a recent study shows that on average, companies with at least one woman in the C-suite are 6% more profitable that those without. Those with at least one woman on the board, outperform those without by 16%. These numbers give everyone a reason to care. If women are so vital to an organization’s success and bottom line, why is it so hard to hire, retain, and promote them?

5 Tips to Capture Quality Employee Referrals


Over the last four years, I have referred dozens of employees to join me at MarketStar, one of The Salt Lake Tribunes Top Workplaces of 2019.

The Race for Inclusion

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to vacation with my family in San Francisco, where we stopped by the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. Within this memorial, there is an amazing waterfall. Behind the waterfall lies quotes from the iconic “I Have a Dream” speech etched in glass-like walls. Though I’ve heard, read, and seen this speech many times, on this occasion, while reading quotes from that speech, it really touched my soul. Together, my family and I read the quotes aloud, and we all experienced the “chill” running down our backs. Shortly thereafter, we discussed the importance of treating everyone with dignity and respect. Then the kids ran off through the garden area with many other children from all different ethnicities and cultural backgrounds. It was quite an experience, and truly something I will never forget.
