Our Impact

One of the things that I appreciate about Linkage is they listen to us. And they took the time to understand what our business was doing and the unique challenges that we’re facing.

The value that we get from the Linkage program is tremendous. We were, from the onset, drawn to the Purposeful Leadership model. It really resonates with the values that we think are important in terms of developing talent. Purposeful Leadership is really about making a leader become whole so that they can more effectively lead their teams.

Since being nominated to this program and getting promoted, I have made an intentional effort to give back. I try to help people in the organization, whether they are part of the program or not. Lenovo invested in me, for which I am grateful, and I owe it back to the company.

When we started our work with Linkage, we didn’t have a women’s story to tell….Now, we have that story.
