How has being a Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies (formerly Women's Studies) graduate from Duke University help shape your professional success?
Having a background in Women’s Studies has prepared me well to face gender inequities that appeared as I rose in my career. I feel like I started my postsecondary education and training on a foundation of strength and inspiration. I work hard with my young patients to help them accept and love who they are. I am working on increasing representation and diversity for my network. Seeing myself and my role in the larger framework of society is a gift I received at Duke. Thank you Jean O’Barr.
