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
ABC News correspondent; "The Barbara Walters Specials"; Creator, Co-Host and Executive Producer of ABC Daytime's "The View."
"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

Very interesting and provocative post here. I really liked Peggy Noonan’s answer and my advice would be along that line, ignore it. I must admit though, no one in my family ever discussed the topic of sexism in the workplace, I learned all that from friends and the best advice I received was from my teachers at school who encouraged all of us to value and celebrate diversity.ReplyDelete

Must have been exciting to get the chance to ask questions to all these global leaders. Wow, I notice you even got to ask Barbara Walters. Awesome. The most important advice I received was from my mother who said “you’re as big as what bothers you.” I stay away from negativity and cling positivity. I enjoyed all these helpful tips and feel it is something we all can relate to.ReplyDelete
My first boss who said to do what you love and rewards will follow.ReplyDelete
Find your purpose in life and go for it.ReplyDelete
I agree with you that we never seem to get advice when we need it. I like all of the tips from these notable leaders but I recall my business professor who said to work hard, plan ahead and set goals no matter what you are working on.ReplyDelete
I received advice from one of my career counselors who said to have a good mentor and surround yourself with people who value diversity..ReplyDelete
Interesting blog post, and I really enjoyed the interesting perspectives from these leaders about advice. The best advice for me was to find your purpose in life and you will always do what you love.ReplyDelete
I agree with you about advice – we sometimes do not get it when we really need it. My best advice for anyone is to not be afraid to “ask questions if you are unsure of what to do and that if your work is not fulfilling, find another one that will be.ReplyDelete
The best advice for me is to work hard and follow your dreams and the rest will come.ReplyDelete
Never doubt yourself and trust your instincts, and you will know if you are in a bad situation.ReplyDelete
I like the title of your blog post, it is so appropriate and the tips from these amazing are an inspiration and indeed filled with plenty of wisdom.ReplyDelete
Listen much and you will always be an excellent communicator.ReplyDelete

Just do what you love and success will follow.ReplyDelete
Avoid office gossip and politics and you will be in with the valuable players.ReplyDelete
Stay focused and organized and don’t put off something for tomorrow you could do today.ReplyDelete
You can still be persistent, work hard at doing what you love.ReplyDelete
Network with people in and out of your business. Networking is one of the best ways of learning about other job opportunities.ReplyDelete
Don’t set unrealistic goals but work hard to achieve your goals and possibilities will be endless.ReplyDelete
If your work environment is filled with negative obstacles, run and find another job.ReplyDelete
Work hard, dream big and anything is possible.ReplyDelete
The old saying, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.ReplyDelete
Don’t be afraid to ask questions, it’s amazing at what doors can open.ReplyDelete
This question can be difficult as there are so many pieces of advice I received but I must say the most important advice I received was to be respectful, work hard, embrace diversity and do what you enjoy.ReplyDelete
If you stay away from negativity and associate with positive colleagues, success will follow.ReplyDelete
