My Matrix Question of the Day: Where you'll find plenty of wisdom!
"What is the single most important advice you would give to young girls starting out about dealing with sexism?”
"Ignore it! It is a wild duck yapping at your ankles. Flick it away!"
~~ Peggy Noonan, Matrix Honoree, 2012
American author of eight best-selling books on politics, religion, and culture and a weekly columnist for The Wall Street Journal.
"Well you know women are 51% of the world. Rely on your own talent and inherent wisdom of the majority, and you will be just fine!"
~~ Susan Werner
American singer-songwriter. Presenter at Matrix to Honoree Laura Desmond.
"Learn how to be a Zenia!"
~~ Barbara Walters

"You know, you just got to work hard always and never let anything set you back. Just have a goal and go for it!"
~~ Zenia Mucha, Matrix Honoree, 2012
Executive Vice President, Chief Communications Officer of The Walt Disney Company.
"Ohm, if you're smart, if you have a positive attitude, if you work in a company or a business that celebrates diversity, you can be whatever you want to be. And truthfully, if you don't work in a company or an industry that celebrates diversity and you aren't surrounded by people who support you then get out and go somewhere else where you can be. Thank you!"
~~ Laura Desmond, Matrix Honoree, 2012
Global CEO of Starcom MediaVest Group.
"Stay true to your instincts and be yourself!"
~~ Maria Cuomo Cole, Matrix Honoree, 2012
