Quotes From The Interview

  • “Women have so much to bring to the table that men don’t have. So if you think about a conference room, if you have only men in there you’re going to get a perspective but guess what you don’t even really know what you're missing because you’ve never invited a woman in and heard her perspective. - Courtney Moore

  • “My biggest thing actually is stepping into confidence … There have been other times when fear going back to fear has really kept me complacent and that has not served our organization well or my team well.” - Courtney Moore
