I would like to celebrate. I have had a long, successful career, have enjoyed those around me
and in general felt empowered to pursue advances across my years in a male dominated space. Any issues with pay, opportunity, and mentorships I feel have been mine to solve and not based on gender. Either I am lucky or bull headed enough not to know any different, but Ive fought hard, gotten lucky, and have won my share.
I would like to celebrate this and acknowledge that this experience also exists.
