In 2011, some companies, including Dow, formed the Alliance for the Empowerment of Women, whose goal is to promote gender diversity in leadership positions. Aligned with the Seven Principles for Empowerment of Women set up by the UN, the Alliance develops and disseminates practices that contribute to gender diversity in the corporate environment. In an event held at its headquarters in São Paulo, Dow and other companies of the Alliance proved inspiring initiatives.

Elisabet recently had the opportunity to sit down with PIttsburgh’s own Darieth Chisolm to discuss what keeps her motivated, what her mission is, and how to keep moving gender integration forward.
Here’s a snippet of what Darieth had to say”
“She reminds women to get loud and be assertive, that sometimes people and women in particular are too nice and too quiet. She reminds us as business owners, leaders in our community and in the office place, that you have to put yourself out there and expand. Being authentic, be fully yourself and fully present. She coaches women to enhance their skills and move closer to achieving their goals. Let’s dive in to learn more about her concepts that have brought her and several others a great deal of success.
-Determine your self worth
-Be a connector and expose greatness in others
-Find ways to relax and find balance”
