Colleen Ferrary, President

"Colleen, your contribution at BSL Educational Foundation Inc. Youth Leadership Conference was an exceptional and a life-learning message to all on the panel, audience, and hosts! Your openness on diversity in the workplace was priceless, your story on staring out within office walls, is a story that I will share with not only women, but men and people of color.  That specific career moment on how your expertise in transportation was so quickly dismissed because of being a female, resonated with the entire audience in a way that not only men must do better on diversity, women need to be prepared when entering the workplace. You certainly have accomplished many leaps within that timeline to present! You have successfully leveraged adversity to be the lesson that inspires all to know one's dreams, desires and aspiration can not be stopped! They are yours for the keeping."
