I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing someone I have known for over a decade. Bethany Williams has been a powerful force for change in the world of technology and healthcare. She is a consultant, Fortune 500 strategist, best-selling author, professional speaker, and senior IT executive in a field largely dominated by men. She learned the art of business survival as a single working mother. Widowed at a young age, she put herself through college and secured top level positions in some of the nation’s leading organizations (GE, IDX, Perot Systems Corporation, and PwC).
I met Bethany when we both were working with Perot Systems Corporation and dealt with the company’s acquisition by Dell. In our interview and in her article below, Bethany discusses how differently her male colleagues react and are treated in the workplace as opposed to their female counterparts. Bethany is a woman that has taken charge of her own destiny and inspired countless others – myself include – to take command of their careers and demand fair and ethical treatment for all women in business. Get ready to be empowered and inspired.
