Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

“"The incredible Sheryl Sandberg and her Lean In movement has inspired many women, including myself, to rethink what's possible to accomplish. Sheryl is incredibly relatable - and shows us that we can achieve what we want with humor, perseverance and authenticity. That it's ok to show vulnerability, to laugh and to not take ourselves too seriously. That is not only refreshing, but a valuable lesson." "During my career, I have blazed a trail that not many other women have blazed. I have broken a few glass ceilings along the way as I have navigated my way through an industry, and a company, steeped in tradition and run almost entirely by men. So being part of Lean In makes complete sense to me personally and to our global organization, where diversity and championing both women and men is not only incredibly important, but is core to our values. We want to share our career journeys and lessons learned along the way, in the hope that others will seize every opportunity, make an impact, and write their own story. My wish is that mothers and fathers will teach their daughters to worry less about fitting into a glass slipper, and more about shattering a glass ceiling."”
