A Call to Action: Go Forth - Patricia Golden Webb
Patricia Golden Webb, a cultural strategist, recently spoke at the Executive Women of Color Summit, hosted by the Leverage Network.
The EWOC Summit is a professional leadership and Board Governance conference designed to increase the representation of African American/Black women on boards, and to enhance their leadership journey. They bring together some of the most dynamic, influential, and successful women in healthcare and corporate America to share candid, authentic conversations and lessons learned.
Patricia Golden Webb, a collaborative leader, and board member presented a call to action to the listeners.
“This is an interesting time in this country. Due to the various things that have happened in the past year, all the unrest, etc., every organization is looking to increase its representation of women and people of color. I think it's a time to ensure that you are prepared for it, you take advantage of it, and you take the risk and go for it. Now is the time. I think all of us who are in positions to help others and make it happen, need to be doing that. We have to hold boards accountable, wherever we are sitting, whatever space we are in, we have opportunities to make it happen. My call to action would be ‘just do it! Move forward, go forth, be intentional, be strategic, and be prepared.’
Women in these positions, the ones we want, will not be extinct.”
