Happy International Women’s Day to all our female residents and team members! Today we celebrate them and their successes in life and in their work towards the Westminster Mission. Hear from Mary Klein, Chief Human Resources Officer, on her thoughts about being a female leader and what today means to her:
Recently, I sent one of my favorite quotes by Maya Angelou to my adult daughter, “To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power.”
I love this quote because it captures the strength we have as women. I am blessed to have spent more than 45 years leading a majority female workforce, which serves a majority of women residents. While the field of senior living has continued to change and evolve over the years, one thing has remained constant: our strong, compassionate, and passionate women working tirelessly to serve those whose came before them.
I am also inspired by the Mission of service of Westminster Communities of Florida. Today, let us celebrate how our female team members can “serve from the heart and inspire older adults to enjoy happy, healthy and purposeful lives.”
On International Women’s Day, I am proud and honored to lead the Human Resources function in a female-centric workforce. Please join me in celebrating this holiday and the generations of women who have made, and will continue to make, our field and our organization successful at serving older adults.
