Rida was named to Philadelphia Business Journal’s Women of Distinction 2022. Rida spoke with the Journal about her experience and answered the following questions:
My secret to success is: Working really hard. Pushing for change. Try everything at least once, and don’t be afraid of having bad ideas. The good ones are worth it.
To uplift other women, I: Validate their perspective. I’ve noticed that in many professional settings, when someone reports a problem they’re facing, many people’s first instinct is to question them – even if they’re doing it nicely.
How I overcome obstacles in my professional life: Seek counsel from someone smarter – I am who I am because of those I learned from and surround myself with.
A piece of advice I’d give my younger self: Embrace your identity. Just do what you’re good at, not what you think you should be good at!
