LEADERSHIP REFLECTIONS

With the recent passing of the Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsberg, it would behoove me to reflect upon her passion and dedication to law and justice and her meaningful purpose supporting women’s rights during Women’s History Month.  In 2019, I researched and shared just a smidge of her life and accomplishments on our facebook page in addition to other remarkable Jewish women: Nancy Brinker, founder of the Susan G Komen Foundation, Anne Frank, author and historian of her profound experiences as a teenager during the Holocaust, Golda Mier, Prime Minster to Israel and Gertrude Elion, a Nobel Prize winning Chemist who championed a chemotherapy treatment for children.  All these women share the commonality of being Jewish but also felt a profound duty to their community.  Women have always had to modify their responsibilities based on priorities.  This is what makes them warriors for advocacy.  Each of these women did this.  Ms. Brinker’s action in honor of her sister, Anne Frank’s desire to keep her thoughts alive for others to hear, Golda Mier’s leadership and Gertrude Elion’s intellectual capability of healing.  Today, many women are leaving the workforce to be with their children through distance learning and to provide spiritual support.  These women know their priorities and are willing to “pivot” for them.  Gertrude Elion summarized this most eloquently by saying “It is amazing how much you can accomplish when you don’t care who gets the credit”.  To all the women who continue the legacy of being a Champion for Change, thank you!
