San Francisco (PRWEB) March 26, 2014 -- Did you know: Women make up just 19 percent of the United States Congress, 5 percent of Fortune 1000 CEOs, and 17 percent of corporate boards.
For Dr. Raye Mitchell, these numbers are unacceptable. This is especially true for women and girls of color, who often face even more stereotypes when they are assertive.
Through her work, Dr. Mitchell aims to motivate all young women to operate outside the status quo and become the next generation of skilled global leaders.
"We’re mislabeling successful businesswomen,” Dr. Mitchell said. “But orchestrating a campaign to eliminate patronizing words, such as bossy, is just the first step. We must take it further and equip women with specific tools to master the game despite the words. This is the true way women will be able to overcome misguided attitudes that spark demeaning words.”
A graduate of the Harvard Law School, Dr. Mitchell trains and helps create problem solvers who are ready and prepared to be the new thinkers within society.
“I want to help and inspire businesswomen to be creative and innovative in making breakthroughs that get them from where they are now to where they want to be later,” Dr. Mitchell said. “This is the only way women can become game changers in today’s competitive market.”
Dr. Mitchell is available to speak to college, corporate and nonprofit audiences about innovation, game changing and global disruption. Visit rayemitchell.com to learn more about Dr. Mitchell's work and to book her for future speaking engagements.
