The employees of the City of Greeley are dispersed across their growing Colorado town. Administrative staff works in a traditional office setting, for instance, while firefighters and public works employees are literally out and about. This means that it’s been difficult to create a feeling of “togetherness” among the workforce, many of whom never get the chance to interact face-to-face. It also means it’s been challenging to develop wellbeing programs that reach and engage everyone with the same levels of convenience and fun.
When I heard the theme for International Women's Day 2019, a balanced world is a better world, I felt a deep personal resonance. As a daughter, mother, mentor, and CEO, I strive to create a more balanced world for myself and my team, and inspire others to do the same. I believe that if you want to encourage change, you need to create it for yourself and then help others feel empowered to make a difference in their own communities, families, and organizations.
