This week, a CEO of a contracts management company describes her journey from law school to running her own company. She knew she wasn't made for the traditional law firm environment. As a white woman who learned Chinese, she new at a very early age that she wanted to be involved in international business. Shortly after law school, she went in-house for a tubing manufacturing company and eventually made her way to one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world, eventually leaving to create her own company in a niche that most people don't even know exists--Contracts Management & Alternative Legal Services Providers. She discusses with Anjie the challenge she faced to express her femininity - a metaphorical and literal "pink dress" surrounded by men in "blue and black shirts" who told her to "smile less." She explains how she survived the sexism to assert, and thrive, as the founder of her own contracts management company, and still be her own professional self.
