WomenLead alumnae Jasmin Gomez, Ashley Finley, Jenna Aungst, Esther Joung and Rahela Anghel share their reflections on what they gained from participating in WomenLead, specifically how the skills and confidence they built helped them launch or grow their careers.
"When I saw WomenLead, I thought, 'Okay, I’m trying to gain confidence, be self-assured and become knowledgeable about issues women face in the workplace...' Being able to openly talk about [issues that affect women in the sciences]...was really empowering for me... It felt really good."
– Naema Daino, B.S., biology ’18, inaugural recipient of Delia Cochran and Sharon Schachter WomenLead Scholarship
"The amount of time we are given to engage with the executives we meet through WomenLead is wonderful. I had an opportunity to have a one-on-one engagement interview with [an Atlanta leader], and she gave me such great advice and encouragement... After completing WomenLead in Business, I was really able to develop my confidence and own what I’ve accomplished."
