As an African American woman, I initially had concerns that there may be a barrier since we come from such different backgrounds. How could I possibly have candid and productive conversations from the perspective of a person of color? To the contrary, Ann creates a safe environment to discuss sensitive topics. I always leave feeling invigorated and fearless while equipped with an action plan for success. ”
