It is a joy to have you as a member of our online community. What an interesting background. I imagine your degrees have been instrumental in contributing to the insights and knowledge you offer in your workshops. I hope you will be inspired to share some of your experiences as well as some of the stories you have heard as you conducted your workshops, as they may provide insight and inspiration for others facing similar challenges day-to-day.

Your interest in cross-cultural collaboration will find inspiration here as you connect with women who have courageously confronted the issues and challenges that has arisen from the difficult environment they found themselves in. I encourage you to reach out to other members to share your ideas, visions and success stories, or start a dialogue by commenting on another journal entry.

Again welcome and I hope that you will find PulseWire to be engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking.
