I moved back home to the Mid-Ohio Valley in 1995 after finishing my MBA at the University of South Carolina. Over the past 17 years, I have been honored to work with many female business leaders in our community. I've reported to one female CEO. I've been co-workers with some very talented female leaders. I've sat on local boards and organizations with women I consider to be rising stars in the community and with their respective employers. I worked in an organization that was comprised of over 80 percent female employees. I've never experienced the cut-throat tactics that some assume occur between female executives. Instead I've found we are a supportive and encouraging group.
