The project was wonderful in how much more I now understand about women, and really any minority, in the workplace. I am involved with Social Justice work here in the Seattle area as well and the information learned and documented is completely transferable to women in any industry. I want to thank you so much for funding this opportunity to learn and share. I appreciate it very much.
