I think the Women’s Conference is awesome. I come back year after year.
I was the only rail person at the first conference I came to years ago. Now we have a BMWED Women’s Committee. We have a booth and we have 18 representatives here now. We have a lot of support.

I am here at the Women’s Conference in New Orleans so that I can be a vessel to teach other Teamsters and other workers what I’ve learned here. It’s about empowerment.
