By Lenora Billings-Harris, Diversity Strategist

A critical mass of energy is building among people across the globe.  People know that we, as global citizens, must do things differently in numerous ways if we expect to effectively address the challenges ahead. Women are at the forefront of the change movement.  Women are becoming more and more comfortable and confident that their words and actions matter. Women Speakers Association is an exciting way to bring women together to further expand the power of the spoken word.  I look forward to collaborating with, supporting, mentoring and learning from the women WSA has and will continue to attract.
