Read a quick excerpt from the feature:
“I am familiar with looking around and seeing no one like me in the room. Now, after 30 years in the business, things are slowly changing – especially in my boardroom. The ability to have diverse leadership is important to growing your business. As we look at expanding our footprint, women can bring skills that our male counterparts don’t have. We are generally more empathic and can be very good at analyzing all the pieces to come up with a win-win. We don’t have to be first in everything, our approach can be to unify. It makes decision-making more effective when we have a pool of diversity, life experiences, and work experience. Many women have started from the bottom and worked their way to the top. This makes our work experience more rounded and can lead us to make decisions that are taking everything into account.
At Solaris, we have a very mixed Board of Directors, both women, men, and various industries, not only manufacturing but other sectors as well. These diverse backgrounds help us to make decisions that have been growing our business exponentially for the past 15 years.”
