Philadelphia Business Journal's Women of Distinction 2022
Executive Director Rida Haq
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!
Welcome Megan Watson as the Board President, and Germain DeMartinis, Steve Park, Matthew Pilcher, and Courtney Wilborn to the Board of Directors.
