Diversity doesn't seem to include strong women!
If so, I'm in deep trouble. I say what I believe and take stances. I expect the people with whom I work to do what they have committed to do - and to do it well in a timely manner. I expect the same of myself as well.
As a New Yorker, I know I can come across as "strong" and that is sometimes intimidating to some people - especially those who have been raised to fear any disagreement at all. BUT, does that make me wrong, or make them a little too thin skinned?
If we honor and accept diversity, can't we also respect and accept those who are strong, outgoing and direct?
