Summary: Karen Buchwald Wright describes the choices she made and the way her values have guided her decisions at home, at work, and in her community.
- “The very first thing I did was to insist that we get a computer for our accounting department. The operations person fought me tooth and nail.”
- “If you want to stay home with your children…there is nothing wrong with that. When you get back in the workforce, you’ll have more skills than virtually anyone else. You’re a manager, you’re a psychologist, you’re a disciplinarian, you’re a leader, you’re a time manager. It’s a real job that requires you to learn on the job and learn a lot and learn it fast.”
- “I think it’s really important that when you are fortunate and you are successful, it’s important to give back.”
